Panorama from Times Building, New York

Panoráma z Times Building v New Yorku

Photography: Wallace McCutcheon
Color: Black and white

This early attempt at trying to find a different visual perspective observes the city from the viewpoint of a newly built 20-story building. It combines the use of vertical and horizontal panoramic images, as the camera explores the city’s streets and buildings and their spatial arrangement.


Wallace McCutcheon (1858/1862–1918) was the American Mutoscope & Biograph Company’s leading cinematographer and director. Later, at Edison, he started collaborating with the iconic director Edwin S. Porter.
