The 360º photos of Anthony Barbour
Anthony Barbour is a photographer from Liverpool, UK whose photographic work stands out for turning every photograph he takes into a kind of small planet – that is, a 360 degree space.
His favorite photographic objects are parks, cities and beaches. Once you find the ideal place to take pictures, Barbour’s technique is to put your camera on the tripod and spend several hours taking pictures into space. On average, the photographer collects about 50 images from each location, each with a different rotation.
“I usually turn the camera three times to capture as much as I can from the surrounding environment, from the ground up to the sky,” explains the photographer.
In the end, Barbour overlaps the various collected images – using an image editing program – to create the final photo.
Barbour uses photography as an escape for a newly diagnosed illness. “In recent years, my health has deteriorated with the diagnosis of ulcerative pancolitis, an unpleasant but manageable autoimmune disease. Keeping myself busy artistically has been important, “says the photographer.
