I’m currently exploring the idea of distilling and deconstructing places using multiple 360° panoramas. Underscoring the details in layers of form and tone that intrigue and invite a viewer to spend some time [re]discovering what they already may be familiar with.
Image integrity is retained and the edge quality when printed (depending on the number of images being used – more goes softer) makes them look like pencil sketches.
The following cases below have emerged as strong, honest contenders to which I’ve applied the technique. My local towns (Carlisle above), rivers, wetlands and an overgrown junk yard are displayed here.
More towns to come but this is Brampton. My home town/village.
Cumbria is farming country and I’m fascinated by the amount of stored or discarded farm machinery. It will be useful to someone, somewhere, sometime.
This is a blend of three panoramas. A contemporary version of the Angkorian cities of Ta Prohm or Beng Mealea. A temple complex of farmers spent tractors, trailers and rusting axles slowly being engulfed by trees.
Three are posted here (all nine image blends). The series goes from these to the entire portfolio of just over 70 panoramas resulting in this below.
These are complex and rather difficult to consume via the web. They lend themselves to being fairly large prints of at least a metre so you can explore them over many visits.
