Discussing a Nuri Bilge Ceylon photograph
I can't think of anything to say about these except that they are absolutely magnificant!
His prints are 48" wide inkjets. They are obviously made with something other than the usual view camera on a tripod. Does anyone know anything about his technique?
Well, the silence about these has certainly been deafening.
over on the large format forum
there was a thread about this ..
it seems that he uses a d** seitz 6x17 camera
and does some sort of d**/technique - "dragan style" ...
now that THAT is out of the way.
i enjoyed his portraits a lot. one doesn't think of
panoramic format for portraits, but it works really well ..
Hi Bill, Missed this thread when it first went up, I'm glad it returned, those are some nice images!
Regardless of the medium I have enjoyed the images and am glad Bill brought them to my attention.

I wonder if these may actually be still frames from his Cinemascope camera? Perhaps that would explain the title. You could easily make HUGE prints from the 70mm negative.
Incidentally, I ordered the DVD of his last film, (about a photographer in Istanbul), but haven't screened it yet.
According to the fellas here: http://theonlinephotographer.blogspo...o-heck-is.html
He would be using a normal DSLR with a wideangle lens, and then would simply crop.
As for the image discussion, I'd say that their Brueghel aspect is fantastic, but the digital manipulation is infelicitous in many instances.
Using film since before it was hip.

On the LF Forum, consensus was that he used a swing-lens panoramic camera. Nobody seems to really know.
i also am sorry i missed these initially
outstanding imagery, beautifully seen, captured and presented
images so good that it matters not how and with what they were captured
g'day mhv, could you please expand this statement a little, i'm not sure i get your meaning
