(14 Oct 2021) Within the Alexander Turnbull Library’s substantial photographic archive there are a large number of panoramas, both negatives and photographic prints.
Panorama photographs capture a horizontally elongated view, often using a lens that rotates from one side to another during the exposure using a Cirkut camera. You can watch a short video of photographer Benjamin Porter demonstrating its use. These panorama prints, large in size, have an added layer of difficulty when it comes to handling and storage.
Madeleine Ross and Siobhon Moore take us through the treatment process they designed for safely flattening panorama photographs stored in rolls.
