Contact sheets are ordinarily used to select photographs to print, but UK-based photographer Martin Wilson’s contact sheets are masterpieces in themselves. His sheets are created by carefully capturing images on 35mm film, scanning the entire film, and then piecing the film strips together digitally into a large contact sheet.
Only when the film strips are laid side by side does the final image come together and make sense. The specific place in the roll of each image is carefully planned out, and Wilson throws out entire rolls of film if mistakes are made. Thus, a single contact sheet artwork will typically take him months to finish.

Welcome to camera gear heaven: here’s a glimpse inside the Canon Professional Services office at the London 2012 Olympics.
