‘Leopard Spotted Horse with Dalmatians in a Landscape’ - Ripley 2017

Planning and primary photography for this large-scale piece was completed throughout 2015/16, and the final picture composed between January and April 2017.

Over 500 hours of finely detailed work, the image is a composition of 60 individual ultra high-resolution medium-format images (23 x Dalmatians, 1 x Leopard Spotted Horse, 36 x sky and landscape). Scale: 228.6 x 101.6 cm / 90 x 40 ins.

The artwork is constructed using panoramas many pictures wide and many layers deep, with shifts of focus throughout the image. This time-intensive process means that every element of the picture is rendered sharp and in-focus by eliminating 99% of the optical depth-of-field artefacts normally associated with traditional photography.
