Earlier this week, we shared how photography student Mark Hilton has been hard at workconstructing a 20×16-inch ultra-large-format camera by hand. If you found that impressive, get a load of photographer Tim Pearse’s handmade 20×24-inch view camera.

Pearse tells us he constructed the camera last year while he was a student at the Plymouth College of Art in Plymouth, England. His goal with the project was to “answer the question of whether a craft based ethos could be applied to modern photographic practice and whether or not this approach was still relevant in a forward looking, progressivist sphere, the type of which photography is steadily becoming.”

Here are some sample photographs he has captured so far using the beastly camera:
