Photographer and educator Brendan Barry has installed a giant camera in Northernhay Gardens in Exeter

The Container Camera, doubles as large-format-camera but also a darkroom – both housed inside a shipping container.

Barry says ‘it is basically the world’s biggest, slowest, and most impractical Polaroid camera.”

The project was Arts Council England funded.

A photography teacher at Exeter School of Art, Barry’s wanted to “reach out to a diverse range of people and invite them to make portraits of the community, by the community.”

Filmmakers Sarah Reyes and Daniel Driensky of Exploredinary decided to film a short documentary about the project.
