> DESCRIPTION

Shortly after the invention of photography, in 1839, its practitioners embraced the panoramic format, first making multiple-part pictures and, later on, individual images created with a succession of panoramic cameras. Most panoramic photographs fall into two categories; either they mimic normal human vision, or they extend it.

The exhibition will comprise about 35 photographs, books by Josef Sudek and Edward Ruscha, one installation by Ken Fandell, and a coffee can reproducing a landscape by Ansel Adams. Among the photographers represented are Berenice Abbott, Oscar Bailey, Frederick H. Evans, Christopher Faust, Gus Foster, Mark Klett, Stuart D. Klipper, O. G. Rejlander, Art Sinsabaugh, Todd Webb, and Jonathon Wells. The photographs will range in time from 1857 to within the last few years (digital color prints).
