A composite image created from more than 109,000 pictures of people jumping will be printed as a single photograph more than one kilometer long and exhibited at ExCel London from June 1 through June 9, reports the Royal Photographic Society.
The project, called Jump4London, is the brainchild of artist Clare Newton. The images all feature a person jumping against various backgrounds; when stitched together they form a single image that appears to show more than 100,000 people jumping simultaneously.
Newton spent 21 months working on the project, and the Guinness Book of World Records is set to adjudicate its claim to be the world's longest photograph when it's printed and exhibited next month.
