Panorama

May 3, 2009

Pan·o·ram·a  (pn-rm, -räm)

n.

  1. An unbroken view of an entire surrounding area.
  2. A comprehensive presentation; a survey.
  3. A picture or series of pictures representing a continuous scene, often exhibited a part at a time by being unrolled and passed before the spectator.
  4. A mental vision of a series of events.

I decided at the end to display my pictures of abandoned premises in a folded booklet. The pictures can be seen as diptychs or all together as a panoramic view. I feel that the display of the photographs as a panorama, which is defined as an unbroken view of an entire surrounding area, undermines the fact, that empty shops are a continuous scene found along the streets of London. It also alludes to the meaning of a panoramic view as a magnificent view.
