How is it to work as a photojournalist? Have you ever thought how it feels to take close shots of high public figures while they make a speech?
Gilles Vidal is a French journalist that has gained fame through his panoreportages: panoramic images/videos that allow viewers to virtually place themselves behind Gilles’ eyes in order to see -moving the cursor- the whole scene he saw, as if turning around 360º.
These high definition exercises help to better understand cameramen’s anxiety when there is only a V.I.P. and many colleagues who want to take the best photo (hence: almost always).
It is also curious to see the King and Queen of Spain surrounded by a swarm of reporters squeezed into a tiny room in their state visit to France (29 March 2007). And then you can glimpse more dangerous situations, such as covering demonstrations with many people hurrying around.
