I have always, always, always… been fascinated by images that were so wide that it was as if I was seeing the place with both eyes. Humans have a total field of view between 160 to 208 degrees, about 140 degrees or so for each eye and by regular field of 120 -- 180 degrees. A wide angle lens does not cover that without some kind of distortion.
For years I used a Widelux film camera. I could use any film. I created my own infrared filters using Kodak Wratten 87 material to fit the moving lens. To my knowledge there is no equivalent digital camera… but there is the iPhone. It’s not infrared, but it moves like the Widelux.
There are places and feelings that cannot be captured any other way. It’s not the same as a wide angle lens.
I will explore and explain process and show results here. Places. Portraits. Ideas. Things.
