I got interested in interactive panoramic photography and virtual tours back in 2002, when it was called Quicktime VR. I remember been blown away by how ahead of its time and engaging the experience was. Now this technology is quite common, thanks to mainstream services like Google Street View.
Interactive panoramas are by definition, not meant to be showcased in a static way. It's always been in a sort of gray area, between photography and web technologies. But as a professionnal, having a portfolio is essential, so one of the way is by using stereographic projection, also known as "Little Planet" projection.
The result is original, surrealistic, involving - exploding usual landmarks, opening endless creative possibilities.
From these experiments was born "Mes Petites Planètes", a crossroad project between art and science, photography and optics.
A new dimension where Daguerre meet Pythagoras along with Escher.
