The Last Panorama

‘The Last Panorama’ focuses on locations where people have taken their own lives.  Presenting these images as large panoramic’s encourage the viewer to immerse themselves in the scene, allowing the opportunity to imagine the perspective of a person considering suicide and to get a feel of the landscape in front of them. However, I didn’t want to show the landscapes to be bleak lonely places, instead I have tried to present them as they can be seen by any passerby. Viewing the images without prior knowledge of the sinister connotations the locations have allows us to question how an individual makes the decision to step off the edge whilst surrounded by so much natural beauty.
