Taking a wider view – Panoramic Photography
Panoramic photography has an enduring appeal that goes right back to earliest days of photography. Once images of outdoor scenes could be made with consistency, there was a desire to capture the widest vista possible by combining images in print. Some of these are remarkable to look back on - there is an amazing collection in the USA Library of Congress.
This remarkable image of Lusitania arriving in New York harbour in 1907 exemplifies the panoramic format and was made from just two plates. The eye has so much exploring to do and it is this visual journey that sets the panoramic format apart.
