Last month I installed a floor-to-ceiling, backlit image into the light box built by my landlord (the wonderful woodworker Robert Kroll) in the hallway next to my photo studio in Berkeley. The vertical panorama was taken at Chapin Forest in Kirtland, Ohio while visiting my family last winter.
It's one of many panoramic images I've taken lately. I'm intrigued by the way that time and motion are implied by irregularities that occur during the shooting process. The panoramic application attempts to unite the lines of a scene seamlessly but motion and parallax work against it, leaving an almost ghostly imprint of the process.
I'm really happy with the way that the added elements of large scale and back lighting contribute to the experience of viewing this image. At this size one feels an invitation to enter into the space and the backlighting recreates the snowy, overcast glow of that cold February afternoon.
