Coming (Not) Soon: 1,000-Year-Long Shutter Speed Photo

Get your 3018 calendars ready. A daring photographer has clicked the shutter button on a photo with a 31,536,000,000-second shutter speed. To save some mental math—that’s a millennium. 

 Jonathon Keats has set up a series of cameras around Lake Tahoe to document “the long-term effects of climate change in the Tahoe Basin.” Keats designed the camera—dubbed the “Millennium Camera”—which is a super-durable copper pinhole camera. It will take nearly 1,000 years for the image to develop. 

As such, the photographer has booked a space to exhibit the photos in 3018. My greatest fear when taking a long exposure image is that I might bump the system and produce a blurry shot. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen…in the next 1,000 years.
