Chris Pinchbeck - to name one person - has been making large images (in the
36"x72" range) in a huge plywood pinhole camera he trailers around behind
his pickup truck. It require him to crawl inside and unroll the sheet of
mural cybachrome (Ilfochrome) paper and then having something to do or to
read while the exposure is being made. He sends the paper out to someplace
in LA for processing. He's getting impressive results.

There are a few of these on his website:

Good luck!!
