Author Josh Sapan takes readers on a journey through panoramic group photography in a celebration of what Luc Sante calls a “strange and compelling medium.”

His new book, The Big Picture, features nearly 100 gorgeous duotone photographs—some of which have been published for the first time—that brings American history to life, from the Coney Island surf-side to large-scale religious revivals and civil-rights protests to home-front efforts during two world wars. Some of the captivating images even encompass a full 360 degrees.

Sapan also captions each photo in a way that describes the people and stories in a captivating way while celebrating the public figures and reflections that connect these Americans of another time to our lives today. The book can be found at
