  1. The actress and artist Susanna Kraus managed to bring the world’s largest walk-in camera back to life. The imago 1:1 was developed by her father, a high-speed photography researcher at Daimler-Benz in the 1970s. Because of the way it is built, the device is also a mirror, literally forcing one to examine their own persona. See more on http://www.theavantgardediaires.com

The Avant/Garde Diaries is a digital interview magazine that documents personal views on the avant-garde.
Rather than labeling people avant-garde, we try to see through the eyes of people, who we admire for what they do. For each article we ask contributors from the creative field to introduce someone or something they consider to be ahead of time and explain why. The result will be a compendium of various, very personal perspectives that disclose new ways of thinking and spread inspiration.
