Worlds Longest Photo, measuring just under 1 kilometre in length, Jumps to Challenge! It has been a long year of criss-crossing London to capture the images for the big pic
Award winning designer, Clare Newton, is now the holder of the Guinness World Record for the largest composite photo to go on exhibition. She was presented with the accolade ahead of the Olympic Games. So, as part of the, London and Partners World Record London, Clare unveiled the record-breaking photograph in the Excel Centre not far from the Olympic Stadium.
She had spent the past year taking pics of people jumping, in all conditions and locations as well as giving the record attempt a definite Olympic theme. The challenge took Clare to parks, schools, housing estates, a number of London streets as well as catching up with dancers, some of them visitors, who were only too happy to take part in her project.
The whole idea was to lead-up to and co-inside with London 2012. Clare took 81,000 photographs of 1800 jumpers – all done on a voluntary basis with many people giving their support for her brave, creative and long challenge.
Clare used a special camera to capture the affects of people jumping which would give them a different image when the photo was developed.
ynuk.tv was there for the showing.
