A 100-man, 1 person orchestra

Photographer creates picture of 100-man orchestra… with the same person playing each instrument

1manorchestra

An Oslo musician and photographer has created a panoramic photo stitched together using 400 images, showing an entire orchestra with every instrument played by the same person. Violinist Alexander Light created the 200MP picture by shooting percussionist Heming ValebjØrg sitting in every seat on a stage laid out for the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra while he played the appropriate instrument for that position.

Starting by shooting the empty stage as a guide, the shoot took Light five hours to complete – but a further seven months to cut out and stitch together so that the images looked real. The detail is very impressive. Head to Alexander Light’s website to see a larger version.
