    I have 30 inch by 15 ft if you want.

    If you have a monster budget... I have 50 inch by 15 ft.
    Monster means in the thousands as I would tag up with a sister lab who has a larger exposing unit than mine.

    Both are Silver Gelatin fibre paper.

    Wouldn't large format inkjet printing be a better way to go, in order to get the effect you are looking for?

    Something like this:-

    You assume that the featureless human form is a model. ;-) A magician never reveals his secret!

    Though, I will say that the shoot took days. Prior to shooting, it took weeks (maybe a couple of months) of planning and choosing the right set up. I'm not even sure I can do it again if I tried!

    I don't know about better, but it'd sure be easier... But where's the fun in that?! :-)

    Ultra large fiber (or fibre) paper. Wow. The cost alone is probably why I've never seen them.

    Interesting project !

    Regarding the sample image, I cannot really imagine how exactly the shooting was orchestrated ! I mean, how did the OP succeed to shoot 1044 pictures of a single scene in the studio, with a 35mm camera, resulting (when combined side by side on a big print) in a normally looking perspective like if it was one single image shot with a normal (50mm) or similar lens... Theoretically, in order to shoot all those small fragments of the scene one should use a super-telephoto lens (something close to 2000mm) but then the perspective (and DOF) would be dramatically different than the one shown on the sample image !

    Anyway, my personal view to this project is that it would be much more interesting to make an "imperfect" (but more interesting) collage of images that would maybe distort the global image created instead of doing such an impeccable view of the general shot. But this is just my opinion and the OP is of course free to decide what to do ! I will only mention that some years ago, I say the work of Tetsu Okuhara and was really impressed, this project brought it to my mind !! Okuhara puts together images shot from different angles in order to create a different perspective of real life images !

    I presume, OP rather shot small area of a big photo made earlier...

    I am rather curious about the device he built to fit infront of the lens to get such a small area to shoot.

    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    The focal length you need depends on how far you are from the scene — 2000mm is a bit much on a 35mm film. In this situation, 400mm was appropriate, moving the camera laterally and vertically to avoid distortion. Or as baachitraka said, shoot a small area of a big photo.

    The "imperfect" has been done. It's easier, less methodical, and not as "crazily obsessed". The actual title of the piece is 1 kilopixel, take from it as you will, but one of the layers I wanted to incorporate into the piece was this modern obsession with digital pixel peepers and their quest for perfection.

    Very impressive project. I admire your persistence! Well done! If you did 20x24 you wouldn't need as many sheets, by the way, and would line up with the final dimension almost perfectly.

    The biggest trays I could use were 16x20". It's also the largest sheets I've ever printed on, and I was constantly worried about creasing the print (I only had 10 sheets — 9 to use, 1 for testing exposure).
