Daniel Maurer from Cologne:

  • In Cologne today the Turkish-Islamic union initiated a demonstration against the terror in the name of the islam and for a friendly living together of muslims and non-muslims.

    After the killing of the Dutch director van Gogh and the trouble which is going on right now in the Netherlands, I think this is the best sign the islamic organisations could come up with in Germany.

The Name: Bonduelle is one of Europe's largest companies, for processed and fresh vegetables. They have been involved in Sail Sport as a sponsor since several years.

The Event: Vendée Globe is a race around the world single-handed with no stopovers allowed. This is the 5th time it is held. It was started in 1989 by Philippe Jeantot who wished to give a new dimension to the world of maritime adventure.

Like the 4 first races the participants set sail from Sables d'Olonne in France.

The Photographer: Denis Gliksman is the master of the panorama. He also happens to be a good friend of Jean Lecam.

To do a panorama like this from a boat sailing is an achivement which needs many years experience and Denis has it. He has been involved in VR Photography since Quicktime VR was introduced.

He is also the master of one of the most viewed fullscreens at the Eiffel Tower.
