Mini Planet Photography

‘What the…?!?!’ Two words (sometimes followed by a juvenile expletive) we find ourselves blurting out with alarming regularity these days. And we’re not even talking about the really important things in life – you know, phone hacking and the like.

Take these photos for instance. The work of photographer David Jackson, what you are looking at is a technique called stereographic projection. In essence, what this means is a rather clever digital manipulation that renders a 360-degree spherical panorama as a flat image.

The effect is much like a mini planet or space station, only with alluring landscapes and familiar landmarks as the subject matter. Jackson explains that each image is made up of anything up to 100 photos, but most tend to comprise 50-60 shots.

Do we understand it? No. Do we like it? Hell, yeah.
