200cm print! Jeff made it with Byron.

Jeff Yuan, a molecular biologist and a photographer with Chinese painting style, recently exhibited his long rolls of print made with Byron.

Here is part of what he wrote to me:
"You can see some of my newest work at www.jyuanimages.info under Landscape Series 2010.  For the very long horizontal panoramic images, I put the camera on a tripod and shoot a picture, roll the film a bit, pan the camera and shoot another picture.  This way I create a very wide panoramic image on one roll of film."

"To print these images, I scan the interpositives and make a digital negative.  From the digital negative I make a platinum/palladium contact print.  For the very longest images, they are over 200cm in length.  It is a long tedious process."

To me, it definitely reminds me Chinese painting arts.
