These photos are amazing—huge, like the size of two school buses, but 10,000x more detailed than a conventional photograph. Maybe even more amazing, the process:
Rauzier takes an hour or two photographing his subject from every angle “like a scanner.” Then the real work begins: days and nights with Photoshop, stretching, bending and multiplying hundreds, even thousands, of images and blending them seamlessly. Since the light changes as he shoots, matching colors presents another challenge. He takes additional liberties with the images, duplicating sections in symmetrical ways to create elegantly surrealist landscapes.
Okay, now I want to actually see one in the world! I can't even get the real ones to load on his site.
