Photographer Kurt Moser Built a Truck That Acts as a Camera

Photographer Kurt Moser created a uniquely portable camera -- potentially the most portable camera in the world -- though not in the way that one might imagine. Rather than being pocket-sized, or modular, Kurt Moser's camera is so portable because it is literally a military vehicle.

In essence, all a camera is is a darkened chamber that allows light to selectively enter and imprint itself on some sort of exposure material. Though consumers typically think of cameras as handheld devices, by the strictest definition, cameras can be any size. As such, Kurt Moser went big when designing his rugged camera.

The unique camera uses a functional Russian military vehicle called a Ural. The reason for the giant truck is twofold: it allowed Moser to easily navigate Italy's South Tyrolean Dolomites mountains (which he captured with the camera,) and it has the capacity to carry the massive glass plates that acted as high-definition exposure sheets.
