Photographer Sohei Nishino pieces together a collage of over 20,000 photographs to create a view of the city of Dundee never seen before. 

V&A Dundee commissioned Nishino to create an artwork that would illustrate the city of Dundee in his unique style of a vast collage. By walking through the city with his camera he captured his experience of it in black and white, and the result is a five-meter wide diorama that displays many significant features of the city, combined and presented in a giant vista of the Scottish city.
