Sutton Images, in collaboration with Shoothill, the world’s leaders in creating Deep Zoom mosaics, announce a collection of seven unique individual MegaFiche Deep Zoom mosaic images depicting past and present World Champions, James Hunt, Sebastian Vettel, Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.

 

Each unique limited edition mosaic features tens of thousands of smaller images sourced from the extensive archives of Sutton Images to create one large mosaic of each Champion. By clicking the link on the Sutton Images website www.sutton-images.com/mosaics, online users will be able to zoom into a closer view of a large high-resolution image or a large collection of images within the mosaic.

 

Each mosaic image will be exclusively available to purchase from the Sutton Images website www.sutton-images.com/mosaics as a poster, printed at A1 size on crystal archival 240gsm paper as an individually numbered limited edition of 500.

 

One of the posters features the World Champion James Hunt, and coincides with the launch of director Ron Howard’s latest film, Rush, which is due for release in September, chronicling the often turbulent relationship between Hunt and his arch rival at the time, Ferrari driver Niki Lauda.

 

Any individual image used within the mosaic is also available to purchase in a range of sizes by searching the extensive online archive at
http://www.sutton-images.com by typing the name of the champion, race and year into the search engine.

 

Keith Sutton, CEO of Sutton Images, commented “We are delighted to be associated with this unique project combining our extensive image archive with Shoothill’s revolutionary technology”

Rod Plummer, Managing Director of Shoothill, commented “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to be able to work with such a fabulous collection of photographs from the Sutton Images archives and demonstrate the unique combination of technologies that Shoothill are so widely recognised for.
