The longest exposed picture of the world

Longest exposed picture of the world, Przemek Zajfert, Exposure time: 8 years

I discovered this camera by coincidence. It was fixed on a tree on the Münchner Freiheit for 8 years. Normally I leave the cameras there just for a year, but i forgot this camera there for over 8 years. In this time the hole of the camera got bigger. (Probably the work of a bird). Because of the bigger hole it was possible for a spider to get inside. The spider spun here web inside the Camera.

Photographys of the nature


The photography was not just the work of the sun, but also the work of a spider and a bird. Joseph Nicéphore Niépce would call it „photografies of the nature“.
