Welcome to my collection of smallworlds which I call panoplano. Many years ago I stumbled upon a square format photograph which had a circular motif with a never-ending horizon, a self contained microcosmos, this caught my attention. Ever since I have been trying to learn this technique.

I have been creating smallworld photos now mostly with Helsinki motifs and preferably urban subjects. As of lately I have noticed that nature focused smallworlds are as intriguing but more difficult to execute. The planning and setting up of a those shots requires more precision – I take photos free hand.

Occasionally I am tweeting and instagraming smallworld photos. They can be found the with #smallworld @kurkista
