Billion Pixel Wildlife

Nature sharper than you have ever seen it before

These amazingly sharp images up to 52.000 pixels long and 20.000 pixels wide, combine the unique effect given by the shallow depth of field of one of the best telephoto lenses on the market and at the same time the immersive feeling of a wide angle. From the arctic forests of Finland, to the volcanic landscapes of Iceland and the Mediterranean backdrop of Catalonia, Ghislain and Marie David de Lossy reveal the invisible details that would normally be ignored by an untrained eye.

They spend hours waiting for the right shot, the moment where the animal fits perfectly into its natural environment to a point where you don’t know who’s watching whom. Despite an incredible precision and clarity of the image, you will sometimes need to scan the vast panoramic picture (more than 3 meters – 9 feet – in length) from one end to another, before realizing what you are looking at, and sometimes who’s looking back at you. A delicate yet troubling blur between the observer and the animal where you know you are not alone.

They have achieved these sets of pictures thanks to an amazing endurance to cold, boredom and hunger, and a very strict attention to the tiniest details.  Using the latest 600 mm :4 at full aperture and a 24 mpx Nikon D3X, they have pushed the panoramic technique to its extreme, with a final quality merged by hand that no machine can match. Gh&M offer you the ultimate wildlife picture.

Not Alone

Printed at 400 ppi without having to blow a pixel on the best paper ever made (Fujiflex) revealing colors like no other and framed under Diasec™. Equivalent to 500 times the quality of a full HD TV (1920×1080), the feeling is a communion with nature.  Enjoy the big picture and then come closer to discovering the smallest wonders of nature; take your time.
