The People Scans photo series harks back to a long-ago past in which photography was almost as tedious a process as sitting for an oil painting portrait--or at least felt that way. It is comprised of ultra detailed shots of people taken with a DSLR that has been rigged up on a track. The subjects in the People Scans series lie down on the ground as up to 20 scans of their body are taken, which are then composited into ultra-detailed representations of that person.

Conceived by Austrian photographer Kurt Hoerbst, the People Scans photo series may use modern technology, but as in the the early beginnings of photography, people must stay still for close to three minutes.
