When the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art’s web component goes live in March, one of the most integral parts will be a virtual tour of The Dinner Party. The virtual tour and panorama are being produced by 360VR Studio, a firm specializing in this type of photography. Jook Leung, 360VR’s founder and photographer, is shown here with his special equipment that will capture this installation. Thanks to Jook’s assistant Peter Barnett for taking this photo of Jook in action.
Jook and the Center’s curator, Maura Reilly, review the first set of photographs that will eventually be stitched together to become the virtual tour.
We are very happy to be working with Jook and his team! You can check out more of his work here.
