About this artwork

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.
