A couple of months ago I sold an image file of my Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay Panorama to be used for an 8 meter wide display at the opening exhibition at the new Utzon Center in Aalborg, Denmark. The building is of course designed by the Danish Architect Jørn Utzon, famous for designing The Sydney Opera House. Last weekend I finally had a chance to visit the Utzon Center and see the print at the exhibition. It’s a very impressive building and wauv; the photographer who shot that 8 meter wide photo, he’s really something special, he’s a legend !!!
If you have a chance to visit the Utzon Center here’s what you will encounter:
Well I doubt that my dear 2 year old nephew (who loves the camera!) will be there as he is in this shot, but get to the Utzon Center before 10th of September 2008 and the print will be there! Here’s a link to video of the photo (shot with my old crappy camera phone, sorry about the appalling quality).
They did a really impressive display, it’s mounted on a free standing custom built curved wall. The image pixel size was blown up 200% but when the print is viewed from two meters away the image appears sharp and the curved effect is like standing in the middle of Sydney (well, floating in mid air looking at Sydney actually). My original shot is here:

I was actually going to ask them what they planned to do with the print after the exhibition but after seeing how it’s mounted it wouldn’t really fit in my flat!
