This great image became the cover of my recent book genius loci

Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant JSC, Pervouralsk, Russia

In 1732, the Vasilievo-Shaitansky Plant was built by the younger generation of the Demidov Dynasty (famous industrialists in the Urals). For two centuries, the production of cast iron and steel was good. Ownership of the plant changed a few times and the production process was modernized. After the Revolution in 1920, this plant was converted into the first industrial pipe production in the Urals. The settlement for the workers near the plant was renamed Pervouralsk. From 1931-1934, a new pipe plant was built with the assistance of German and American specialists. During World War II, hundreds of pipe types, for example barrels for mortars and missiles, were produced there. Today, it is possible to implement almost any type of steel pipe productiontechnology in the plant. The launch of a new electric furnace melting steel complex in 2010 made the process environmentally safe.

[…] engaging Kellner’s work there is still some leeway and indeed, reason, to speak not only about the depiction but also about its referents. Fernando Castro R Mexico. Kontakte einer unendlichen Stadt. Kellner, Thomas & Fernando Castro A. 2011 Seltmann+Söhne Lüdenscheid/ Berlin 49

Thank you to Ken Rosenthal, for his post. And yes please consider any of the perks to reach the goal for Rhonda and rhubarb-rhubarb.
Thomas Kellner is an exceptionally fine photographer, and has an incredible spirit and energy. He has been a champion of the campaign for Rhonda from early on, and has helped tremendously to ensure the success of this campaign. I am proud to count him amongst my friends. There are still several of Thomas' prints available at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-rhonda-wilson If you have wanted a print of Thomas' for awhile, take my advice and buy one now. You are, most importantly, helping Rhonda by doing so. But you are also getting an amazing print by an important figure in the medium.

Thank you to Michael Zhang for posting my work on Petapixel

Panoramic Pictures of Famous Locations Made From Carefully Shot 35mm Film

German photographer Thomas Kellner creates large-scale panoramas of famous locations using 35mm film. Rather than have the shots printed or digitized, Kellner uses scans of the film strips themselves. The rolls are kept in their long strips, which means Keller meticulously plans out and carefully shoots every shot to have the frames come together when the strips are placed side by side.

He has created these unique mosiac-style panoramas of popular tourist destinations all around the world, from Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco (shown above) to the Great Wall of China. The resulting project is titled, “Tango Metropolis“.
You can find more of these images over on Kellner’s website.

Kellner also has a prior project titled “Monuments,” which features smaller buildings and structures turned into smaller-scale panoramas (sometimes with a single roll of carefully exposed film).

"His photographic assaults stretch from il Colosseo and la Tour Eiffel to Times Square and the Golden Gate Bridge, and at this point very few major American or European Cities are innocent of his fracturing gaze. Richard Wendorf about Thomas Kellner I want to break manifold ways of perception to my audience. My main interests have always been in finding strong visual languages that are powerful enough to tell us something about their subjects that more "realistic" images cannot do. Right from the beginning of my studies, my basic interest was in experimental and conceptual photography. I created different pinhole series, photogram work and printings in alternative techniques, such as cyanotype, saltpaper and others. When Kodak Germany awarded me the Young Professionals Prize, I decided on a life in art and photography. In 1997, I finally started working on the contact sheet method to visually deconstruct architectural icons. My trademark style was born. Since then, I have been shooting prominent monuments all over the world. My images are asking to challenge usual perspectives – the buildings seem to be broken apart, dancing and remind us of the vulnerability of our values and creations. Thomas Kellner has shown his work in solo exhibitions in: Aarhus, Brasilia, Boston, Chicago, Cologne, Giessen, Hamburg, London, Los Angeles, Munich, New York, Portland, Siegen, Stuttgart, among others. His work has been shown in important group exhibitions, such as... "Madrid Oh Cielos!" Círculo de Bellas Artes, Madrid, Spain, curated by Luis Pereira, 2010 "A mind at play" The Art Institute of Chicago, USA, 2008 "Fantasy & Denial" Ffotogallery, Cardiff, Wales "Thought Provoking - Sense Provoking” Noorderlicht Gallery, Groningen, The Netherlands, 2007 "Pieced Together: Photo Montage from the Collection" The Art Institute of Chicago, 2004 "Ars & Archittetura 1900–2000" Genoa/Italy, 2004 "Vues d’architecture" Musée de Grenoble/France, 2002. Thomas Kellner’s work is included, e. g. in the collections of: Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, USA The Boston Athenaeum, Boston, MA, USA George Eastman House, Rochester, NY, USA Haverford Collection, Haverford, PA, USA The Dayton Art Institute, Dayton, Ohio, USA Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, MA, USA The Art Institute of Chicago, Collection of Photography, Chicago, IL, USA Fidelity Investments Corporate Art COllection, Boston, MA, New York, NY, Singapore Wellington Management Company, Art COllection, Boston, MA, USA Thomas Kellner is represented by galleries in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Munich and Cologne among others.
