London will soon have the longest photograph in history on display just in time for the 2012 Olympics. It was created by the artist and designer Clare Newton who spent 21 months photographing more than 109.000 people jumping in the air and then seemlessly stitching their portraits to one 1000 m long image.
The photographs were taken across London in shopping malls, parks and other open spaces inviting people from all walks of life to take part.
It will be first exhibited at ExCel Exhibition and conference centre in London Docklands from 1-9 June.
Another great example for a simple idea but executed on such a scale and with so much passion that it becomes something incredibly powerful.
I will defnit check it out.
