Hurricanes, Turkish panos, & more
- The New Yorker talks to photographer Clifford Ross, creator of the ultra-high-res R1 film camera (see it on his site), as well as the R2, a 360-degree video camera (images) that captures 9 gigs of data each minute. The R2, they write, is "like a super-high-tech Advent calendar," revealing "thousands of little inadvertent dramas." I’ve found Clifford’s site engrossing, offering a high-res sample image, as well as his terrific Hurricane series (apparently a very wet shooting endeavor). [Via]
- As Turkish photog & filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan traveled the country to scout locations, he created a series of striking panoramas called Turkey Cinemascope. His muted palettes & lighting are out of sight. The Online Photographer offers a brief profile.
- Macduff Everton travels the world making beautiful images, many of them panoramic. I found his site a touch difficult to navigate (and the images sadly tiny), but the gallery is lovely nonetheless. [Via Dave Sailer]
