The locationThe Schirn Kunsthalle is Frankfurt's foremost exhibition space located in the heart of the old city next to the Dom (Frankfurt Cathedral), which can be seen in the starting spot.
Exhibitions in recent years included retrospectives of Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall, Frida Kahlo, Alberto Giacometti, Bill Viola, and Yves Klein.
Historically, "Schirn" means an open-air stall for the sale of goods and such stalls were located here until the 19th century. The area was destroyed in 1944 during the Second World War and was not redeveloped until the building of the Schirn Kunsthalle.
The Schirn Kunsthalle has 2000 square meters of exhibition space. It was designed by the architectural firm of Bangert, Jansen, Scholz & Schultes. It opened in 1986.
Making OfThe shooting was done with a tripod and a ball head. The lens was mounted with a custom made bracket, which allows to mount the lens to turn around the no-parallax point of the lens.
As the lens is a fisheye lens, four pictures easily cover 360°. But due to the lighting conditions I took three exposures at each direction. Fortunately I was able to extract a well exposed picture out of the middle exposure.
I took two additional pictures for the zenith and nadir. Luckily the stitching went pretty well and I only used the nadir.
