Armed with the skills of a carpenter and obsessed with all things visual, Austin photographer Ian Kasnoff has created a mobile lab for his unique brand of artistic alchemy. His Trailer Camera was born in 2014, when Kasnoff decided to turn an 8-foot box trailer he owned into a camera obscura—a dark room with a small hole in one wall. Light passes through the opening and projects the outside world onto the walls and ceiling. After replacing the hole with a lens, Kasnoff began using light-sensitive photographic paper to capture large-format images. Now in its third incarnation—a 16-foot cargo trailer complete with built-in darkroom—the Trailer Camera has evolved into a sophisticated mobile device.
