    photographers using panoramic format

    Hello everybody, I´m finding another photographers, who used panoramic format in their work - I know Josef Sudek and his Panoramic Prague, Josef Koudelka and his Black triangle, Ivan Lutterrer or Jiri Toman (all are from Czech).

    Could you name the others or the interesting web sites?

    But i don´t care about typical landscape photographers who takes "nice" color pictures of exotic beauty landscape without personal point of view. But I prefer "bw" photographers with more subjective works.

    The American Lee Friedlander has a relatively recent series on Frederick Law Olmstead parks. Some of those shots were taken with a panoramic camera. Though Friedlander held the camera vertically. I saw the show at his San Francisco dealer's a few years ago. I personally didn't think the panoramic shots were the strongest images on display, but you might like looking at them.

    Here's a link to one: http://www.metmuseum.org/special/lee...w_1.asp?item=2

    I also have seen panoramic photos by Sylvia Plachy, among her other work.

    Jens Olof Lasthein might interest you. Much of his work is made on a Widelux. He recently won the Leica Barnack price for his portfolio "Waiting for the future". Also look at "White see black see" It is color photographies with lots people and situations.

    I've used the Widelux too for a B&W exhibition on China...it's a pretty amazing camera. Probably common knowledge but actor Jeff Bridges does some pretty neat stuff with a Widelux also.

    yes, the work of that man is exactly what i like!
    I´m interested in new angles of view, composition and playing with perspective... I think, that the panoramic format offers a lot of possibilities, but most authors use it only in its the most simple way - like horizontal picture of landscape. However such "live" panoramic document or street photo becomes more dynamic at once.

    Geir Jordahl (using IR B&W film) http://www.jordahlphoto.com/framegallg.html

    And a link to his last book (very very well done!) http://www.searchingfortruenorth.com/ But all the panoramics in this book are verticals!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
