As part of the recent Format International Photography Festival 2013 in Derby, UK, the world's largest mobile printing press was used to interactively create a mobile photo exhibition featuring the images of EyeEm users worldwide.
Participants submitted their images by tagging them on EyeEm. Between March 8 and April 7, more than 6,000 images were printed as part of MobFORMAT: The Press, the brainchild of mobile photographer (and Connect contributor) Misho Baranovic. Visitors to the Chocolate Factory exhibition space chose which images should be added to the growing collage of photos surrounding the printer.
"Together we made a living and breathing mobile photo stream," described Baranovic.
