Rauzier sees his 'hyper-photos' as the photographic equivalent of hyper-Realistic paintings, popularised in the 1970s by artists like Richard Estes). Rauzier 'wants the viewer to have to make an effort to tell if it’s a photo or a painting'.

He starts with 600-700 photos of a single scene taken over a period of at least 1-2 hours. He then stitches them together using Photoshop (the only program he could find that was capable of managing the 10-15 gigabyte files).
