The Big Picture – The Panoramic Photograph, from the 1840s to the Twenty-first century

Pavillon Populaire, Montpellier, France: November 2008 – January 2009

The Big Picture is an exhibition that highlights striking, historically significant and innovative photographs selected from the history of the panoramic image – a term which may encompass everything from the Daguerrotype to a virtual reality 360° view.

The aim of the exhibition is to display c.250 of the most interesting photographic images made for a number of purposes in art, science, topography and society from the 1840s to the 21st century. The installation will also comprise cameras and other objects, and multi-media displays that show how panoramic images can be made and used for a wide variety of purposes. It is based on extensive research by the curator, Peter Hamilton.
