Swiss photographer Daniel Boschung has taken the gigazoom photos we see of landscapes and applied them to the human face.
He has a number of examples of such photos on his Web site. You can pick a face and zoom in on any part of it. It’s a neat idea.
Here’s a bit more from his Web site:
Each picture consists of about 600 single shots with a size of 900 million pixels. The result is hyper realistic. A stubble turns into a trunk, a wrinkle into a canyon, the nostril into a cavern. These facial landscapes are dismaying – why? ”Emotions are completely missing. Emotions show up only briefly while Macro photography takes half an hour. The person has to stay motionless while being photographed by the robot” explains Boschung.
