Billy Hunt is a photographer with some fascinating fascinations. For example, there’s the three books he’s done on the culture around ladies arm wrestling. But it’s his Screamotron3000 which got him on the NBC Today Show. The Screamotron3000 is a photo booth made up of a boom box and a couple of DSLRs. The cameras are activated by the subjects’ screams (the boom box, apparently, just works to measure the volume of the scream and trigger the cameras). The results are some fascinating portraits of people captured in ways you don’t usually see them.
He put his first Screamotron series into a Blurb book.
But now he’s really hit the big time, getting the Today’s Show anchors to scream their heads off on national television. Check out the video, after the inevitable Hulu ad, below. To see more of the photos from the Today Show, check out Billy’s Facebook album.
