An exhibition of panoramic photography by Michael Westmoreland

Photos from one of the key names in panoramic photography

If you look at the history of panoramic photography, there is one UK photographer who’s work stands out from the 1970’s both from a technical and artistic point of view.

For the celebration of his 80th birthday, he has a large exhibition in Leicester at the People’s Photography Gallery, where I’ve also had some of my own work in the gallery’s opening exhibition.

All those prints behind him are real photographic prints, often from a single strip of film.

It was indeed an honour to be invited along to his birthday celebration and chat about cameras and printing

The exhibition is currently on at the LPPG

Update: I’d just note that it’s some of Michael’s work that inspired the creation of my own 14 metre print, shown in the same gallery.

      look for his web site – unfortunately I don’t think there is any facility for buying prints, but you will find the contact details

  • I feel very good to have a friend with the same name who is even more crazy in panorama-land. Received a lot of advice. Should have visited him in the 90ties when had had an exhibition in london. Panoramas keep us fresh!

  • Great Images! Keep them coming!
