Panography Photography

Panography is a photographic technique to compose one picture from several overlapping photos. This is normally done by digital image editing software.



Panographs often resemble a wide-angle or panoramic view of a scene. Then they can be understood as a special case of segmented panoramic photography or image stitching. The distinct feature of a panograph is that the overlaps between adjacent pictures are not touched up. Therefore the overall look of a panography is one of a collage of photos. Panography has been around since circa. 1992, when french Photographer Robert Vertu exhibited a series of Panographs at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

In other words, Panographies are wide-angle pictures composed of several individual photos manually stitched together. When these component photos are assembled, they give the impression one would get standing in one place, looking around and unconsciously putting the pictures together in one’s head.
