the bigger picture


{look both ways by MW}

Martin Wilson's pictures are painstakingly created frame by frame on 35mm film. Once finished, he pieces the series together onto one big contact sheet, resulting in a final larger image.

Each piece of work usually takes months for Wilson to complete, as each frame is compulsively taken in sequence. This is not the result of some Photoshop magic - if he makes a mistake, he starts the film again from the beginning.

How cool is this? If it weren't such a tedious project I would give it a try myself...
