Esteban Pastorino Diaz (ARG-E)
Esteban Pastorino Diaz is one of those few people who keep on inventing photography in the third millennium. He has proposed a few ways of image creation using either new means of adapting earlier knowledge and new strategies. He is the author of the longest unique negative, which was 39.54 m long, and therefore, the holder of the Guinness Record title (2012) for the longest photograph ever made, beating the previous record of his own.
KAUNAS PHOTO festival is proud to present the works created by the master-hand of Esteban Pastorino Diaz, which show festive marches in different Spanish speaking countries: Cuba, Ecuador, Spain. These uniquely long photographs feature long parades and marches, which are captured with the slowly moving film, in attempt to match the speed of walk. The panoramas of moving crowds capture long periods of time in a sequential way, using a whole roll of film for each image.
