New photography exhibit provides a broad view of small details

A new exhibition of photography from Jean-Francois Rauzier is blurring the lines between technology and art, as it features "hyperphotos" that use computer programs to stitch thousands of photos together into one large image.
The exhibition features images of the Library of Congress. To create them, Rauzier took thousands of up-close, detailed pictures of the library's shelves, then combined them into single images.
The photos bring new possibilities to large-scale pictorials for their extreme detail and distinctive look.
Rauzier said the technique gives a particular kind of distortion to the subjects which can only be accomplished in this way.
"When you are looking at a Hyperphoto, at first you think you are looking at an enlargement of a panoramic photograph, but look more closely and you absorb a strange atmosphere that distances the viewer from the real world and pulls you into a universe of dizzying amplitude," he said.
The photos in this current collect combine as many as 3,500 individual snapshots to create one image.
