In this unique exhibition, Serindia Gallery presents a fascinating story of photographer Jaroslav Poncar and his relationship with a single type of camera, the FT-2, a 1958 Russian-made that takes true panorama photographs — single continuous horizontal images that are natural to the human eyes.

Though for 40 years he has used this camera and ended in 2016 with the last roll of 35-mm Kodak Ektachrome, the life with this camera did not come to an end. It lives in the photographs that Poncar took in various places in Europe, Central, and Southeast Asia.

In this aesthetically informative show, the audience will marvel at the quality and subtitles of the photographs
taken only with this camera and a 35-mm film. Some are presented as long as three meters and some in vertical formats. This will be a must-see and eye-opening show for a new generation of photographers.
