Lot Essay

The panoramic photograph “Planet Earth” by Sergey Melnikoff is an awe-inspiring image that won a special prize at the prestigious Memorial María Luisa International Mountain and Nature Photo Contest 2008 in Spain. The photo captures a breathtaking view of a mountain range in southern China at sunrise, taken from the top of one of the bamboo-covered peaks. To capture this stunning panorama, the photographer spent the night on the mountain among the jungle’s inhabitants.

The day before the photo was taken, a dust storm swept through the area, raising an enormous amount of fine particulate matter into the air. These particles tinted the surrounding world in vivid shades of pink, giving the panorama an unusual and striking beauty.

The photograph was taken in 1996 using a Fuji GX617 panoramic camera and subsequently scanned on a laser drum scanner. This technology allowed for the creation of a gigantic panorama with unprecedented clarity and the “window effect” where viewers feel as if they are looking through a massive window.

This stunning panorama serves as a reminder of the beauty of our planet and the incredible natural wonders that exist in even the most remote corners of the world. It also showcases the incredible advancements in photographic technology that allow us to capture and preserve these moments for generations to come.
