In this image two circles of photographs are spliced together on an aluminium base, each row photographed at a different angle. Johnston uses a camera mounted on top of a six-metre pole. He developed the technique in order to photograph Neolithic sites, offering a complete concentric birds-eye viewpoint of their formation. This unusual perspective involves the viewer more intensely in the process of looking.

Glossary Open

Neolithic

Refers to the culture of the late Stone Age, characterised by sophisticated stone tools and the appearance of pottery and weaving.
