With this arial panoramic of Manhattan, Sergey Semenov won the 2012 Epson International Photographic Pano Award in the Amateur category. This image was created by electronically stitching together thousands of panoramic views taken by him in 2011. With this method, Semenov was able to “flatten” the spherical nature of panoramas.


His love for panoramic photography comes from his desire to share his impressions of cities around the world with those who can’t travel. This same intention led Semenov to collaborate with others to create the Airpano project, which exposes the most beautiful places in the world, in a manner that nobody has seen before.

His incredible work is also available to purchase in his site! I give you a taste with this beautiful image of Rio de Janeriro, Brasil.
