Photo History Trivia #02

I'm going to have to make this more difficult. It only took about ten minutes for someone to Google my last answer.

Here's the next challenge:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/772/thumb/417690.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/772/thumb/417690.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Who made this photo?
What year was it made?
What is the significance of it?

If no one finds it soon, I will give a hint sometime tomorrow...

You are correct :)

How did you find it?

What are some of the things that made this significant as a composite?

Not only is it a composite, it's a composite of 32 separate images.

I found it herer: //www.cutandpaste.info/ by searching Photo-montage :)
It doesn't go into the particulars of this image, but mentions that, as today, it was difficult to correctly expose for all areas of a landscape and the method of blending two or more exposures became common - and the photomontage emerged from that. The Photographic Society, however, did not consider this to a legitimate form of photography and banned it from exhibitions.
This particular image seems to be a "Tableaux Vivant" - designed to emulate the classical painters. They were made of several photos - perhaps the first pano?

In a nutshell, the debate between what is photography and what is photoshop has been going on since the very beginnings of photography :) As soon as we learned to create photographs, we learned how to manipulate them. We have been doing it for 150 years, it's not a new phenomenon :)
