Double spread panorama photographs in excellent quality with motifs from around the globe

A major contribution to contemporary photography and the tradition of the panorama

With illustrated essays on the history of the panorama and urban development

In this outstanding new monograph, architectural photographer and filmmaker Hans-Georg Esch presents a selection of his most striking panoramas, from Cologne to Chongqing, in an image format of 2.4 : 1. When opened, the book boasts a 1 meter breadth.

With some 60 panoramic photographs, Advancing Horizons shows cityscapes, skylines and other remarkable views around the world. The double spread photos, printed in outstanding quality, are complemented by select details to enrich understanding of each featured location.

An introduction by Leica Galleries Director Karin Rehn-Kaufmann and three richly-illustrated essays place Esch’s photography in the art-historical tradition of the panorama, dating back to antiquity. Further commentary by Oliver Bennett explores the history of urban development.

Karin Rehn-Kaufmann is Director of Leica Galleries.
