Big Pictures, January to February, 2005


Images in the “Big Picture” series are panoramic since they present a wide view and provide an all-encompassing survey of a street or place, but the images do not pretend to have been taken in one shot. The images in the series are composed of twelve or more digital photos that have been collaged together to create spatial harmonies and disharmonies, in some passages the images seem to be continuous and in other passages images overlap and show only half of a car or 3 sides of a building.
