French photographer and digital artist Jean Francois Rauzier creates fantastically huge images that only reveal their true detail when viewers dive in, explore and linger. Dubbed “Hyperphoto’s“, a term he coined, each image is composed of hundreds, if not thousands of individual photographs. Rauzier collects images using a telephoto lens, sometimes from a single vantage point, then spends countless hours methodically stitching them together until it is impossible to tell one image from another. His patient work sometimes captures reality, but more often he imagines surreal worlds, creating landscapes that seem to repeat into a dreamlike infinity.
