From in New York City, Jook Leung is a professional 360 Panoramic Photographer intent on capturing wide-view images of people in urban landscapes around the world. His work has been described as "visually rich narratives depicting the intricacies of the world's cultures with the full spectrum of human emotion." Through his work, viewers can experience not only what the world looks like from a single vantage point, but the entire visual spectrum that they would have if they were spinning around in a circle while standing on the same point in real time.
Spanning the last two decades, Jook's 360 panoramic photography reveals the more subtle interactions between subjects and their environment that might not be apparent in regular photos. His work captures greater detail than standard photographs, offering viewers an understanding of the composition in deeper context. Differing from videography, panoramic photographs can be viewed in their entirety in a single moment or presented digitally, allowing the viewer to explore its dimensions with a mouse or a touch screen.
Always looking for the his next shot and ready to see it before it happens, Jook is internationally recognized as an innovator in spherical panoramic photography. In a rare achievement, he was awarded three consecutive Fuji Film Masterpiece Awards for photographic excellence in electronic imaging by the International Association of Panoramic Photographers (IAPP). Additionally, his experience spans 34 years as an advertising and editorial photographer with a background in photo-illustration and digital imaging. Commercially, his current work with immersive panoramas includes hospitality, tourism, events and museum projects.
Jook has given presentations and workshops about his work at International Virtual Reality Photography Association (IVRPA) / VR Summits and at International Association of Panoramic Photographers (IAPP) Conventions. He has written articles for Panorama Magazine. In January 2005, his panoramas were featured in an on-air interview on ABC's News Now program about his 360VR panoramas of Times Square on New Year's Eve.
Diarna, “Our Homes” in Judeo-Arabic, is the flagship initiative of Digital Heritage Mapping, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit specializing in digitally preserving historic and cultural sites worldwide. The project pioneers the use of digital mapping technologies to explore the unfolding of Jewish history in the Middle East and North Africa through the prism of physical location by digitizing individual sites (schools, cemeteries, synagogues, shrines) and memories.
Anyone with an Internet connection can use Diarna to travel across the region as if on eagles' wings, unaffected by political and inter-religious strife below. Previously unknown or difficult to visit sites are now "visitble" via Diarna's weaving and synthesizing of satellite imagery, immersive panoramas, three-dimensional architectural models, archival and contemporary photography, scholarship, and oral history recordings.
Dirven by a team with diverse background and outlooks--including young Muslims eager to discover their shared history--Diarna has been: featured as a resource for scholars in the "Encyclopedia of Jews in the Islamic World" (Brill Publications, 2010); recognized as one of the 50 most innovative Jewish projects in North America by the Slingshot Fund (2009-2010); the subject of a panel at the Association of Jewish Studies' 42nd Conference; profiled in Haaretz (http://goo.gl/2N9VZ); and is partnered with Wellesley College, the Alliance Israélite Universelle, Beit Hatfutsot: The Museum of the Jewish People, and the Yad Ben-Zvi Institute.
The immersive panos published here are an advance preview of The Diarna Project's D'fina exhibit (http://www.JewishMorocco.org), dedicated to uncovering the "buried" or "covered" Jewish treasures of Morocco.
Spanning the entire country, from metropolitan centers to remote villages, D’fina proffers a virtual passport to visitors wishing to explore mountain-top shrines of Jewish “saints” that continue to be voluntarily protected by Muslim caretakers, scorpion-guarded genizot (burial grounds for holy texts and objects), anthropomorphic tombstones in seaside cemeteries, synagogues on the edge of the Sahara Desert, and ancient urban quarters with hidden reminders of their one-time residents. This exhibit marks the first public showing of documentation on the majority of these sites, including several Vichy regime desert labor and “discipline” camps where hundreds of Jews and non-Jewish political prisoners toiled, suffered torture, and died during the Holocaust.

Cilicia and Mersin
Cilicia Region roughly extends from the Manavgat River, through the southern foothills of the Taurus Mountains, to the Amanus Mountains. According to the geological structure, Cilicia is divided into two as the Rugged Cilicia (Cilicia Trachaea) and the Flat Cilicia (Cilicia Pedias ). The border between the Rugged Cilicia and the Flat Cilicia was the Lamos at times and the Soli at others.
As it is known to those who toured around the area, there exist three gates that enable access to this land through a rugged course. The first of these is the Sertavul Pass, which is located to the north of Mut District. The second one is the Cilician Gate, which is known as the Gülek Pass and hosts a rock bearing the inscription “the Cilician Border”, and the last one is the Belen (Syria) Gate on the route to Hatay Province.
Surrounded by Gazipaşa District of Antalya Province to the west, the provinces of Konya, Karaman and Niğde to the north and the Mediterranean Sea to the east, Mersin was annexed to the land of Ottomans in 1516 during the reign of (Yavuz) Selim I. It was then ruled by Kavalalı Mehmet Ali Pasha for some time, but later Ottomans gained control of the area once again.
Mersin Province was founded in 1924. Districts of Silifke, Anamur, Gülnar and Mut were annexed to Mersin Province, and the Province was renamed as ‘İçel’. It is thought that the long-used “İçel” name derived from the name given to the site by Turkish people who settled in the areas located on either side of Göksu River during the 12th century, or has actually transformed from “Uç-il/ Uç-el” denomination used by Anatolian Seljuk Sultanate for this “Uç ülke, uç diyar (literally: the frontier land)” located beyond the Taurus Mountains. Erdemli district was founded in 1954; then followed Aydıncık District (1987), Bozyazı and Çamlıyayla Districts (1989). In 2001, the name ‘İçel’ was, once again, replaced by “Mersin” due to intensive pressure from the citizens. Having a Metropolitan City status, Mersin is divided into four central districts, namely Akdeniz, Toroslar, Mezitli and Yenişehir. Including Tarsus District, Mersin has 13 districts in total.
It was revealed in the excavations performed in Yumruktepe site that the history of Mersin dates back to 7000 BC. The settlement found on the northwestern part of the current City center flourished around 7000 BC, and continued to exist expanding even larger.
Zephyrion, which is perceived as the antique settlement of Mersin, is localized somewhere between the Governor’s Residence and the Orthodox Church. Archeological findings gathered especially during the salvage excavations performed in the New Cultural Center constructed here and in the Old Public House garden, and the Kuros statute, which was excavated from the same area and displayed in Mersin Museum, are attributed to the Antique City of Zephyrion. The city, which was referred to as a ‘Polis’ during the Hellenistic Period and the Persian Period (and in later periods, as Hadrianapolis), was captured by Shapur I in 260 AD. While it was among the cities of Cilica I Region during the Byzantine Empire Period, it transformed into a prominent port city in the first quarter of the 19th century.
There are numerous opinions and myths about the roots of the name “Mersin”. The most widely-known one derives from the ‘Myrtus-Murt-Myrtle’ tree, the yield of the Mediterranean Climate, which is called “hambales” by Arabs. According to another opinion, the name Mersin is inherited from the Mersin Tribe, which was one of the Turkmen tribes in history. In his Seyahatname (literally: ‘Book of Travel’), Evliya Celebi notes that he stayed in a village called “Mersinoğlu”, which is located on the northwestern part of the present-day Mersin.
The Myth is as follows:
The name Mersin came from the princess Myrna, daughter of the Cypriot King. Gods pitying Myrna, who had been cursed by the goddess Aphrodite, brought her ashore to Mersin. The place was named as Mersin because of that incident.
I was born on 31st August 1959 in Finale Ligure. In my opinion the photographer is “who can find that small and hidden particular or detail (part of that universality we observe) that we don’t catch and communicate it through his eyes and works”.
I like to quote a beautiful thought of the French photographer Edoard Boubat (1923-1999): “You can’t become a photographer. You must live this work everyday, hour after hour, seizing the moment. The thousandth of second. Everything changes. Every moment. Only a step forward or back can damage the most perfect picture”.
My photos have been published in magazines, newspapers, national and international headlines like 24 Karati, Business People, Archeo etc. . I am partner as creative photographer of the National Association of Professional Photographers in Milano.
I am specialized in different genres: Advertising and Business Photography, Portrait, Ceremony, Landscape, Food and Still life, Stage Photography, Beauty, Real estate, Architectural and Interior Photography.
Report at the Photography Prize, Milano 2008: “The photographic production of Rescigno tends to find a remarkable balance between customers demand and his personal research of technical growth in this field (Roberto Tomesani – President of the National Association of Professional Photographers).
I travelled in the USA and in other countries of the world.
In 2002 I was selected by the International Events of Milano to represent the Italian photography for the “Independence day”: four evenings dedicated to the USA to celebrate 4th July.
From 2005 to 2010 I had my experience as official photographer and I collaborated with a press office to document and show the main activities and events of the city of Finale Ligure. In different occasions mass media focused on me with regard to my exhibitions.
I have improved my experience in theatre photography and from 2006 for several years I was one of the stage photographers of “Teatro della Tosse” in Genoa. I also lent my work to important theatre directors such as Maximilian Nisi.
I am also specialized in architectural photography and I challenged me in shots of big spaces with sophisticated techniques.
From 20 February to 20 March 2009 at Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, the “International Poetry Room” housed my exhibition “Immagini e parole” (pictures and words) after the collaboration with the famous Roman poet Antonella Pedicelli.
From 4 April to 11 May 2009 I held my exhibition “MASKS” about the charm and magic of Venice masks.
From 6 to 12 September 2009 I did a picture story on behalf of UNITALSI LIGURE. An extraordinary experience from the human and professional point of view. And then its exhibition “Pellegrinaggio a Lourdes”, with the support of the Department of Education Sciences and Training Processes of the University of Turin, supported by the department UNITALSI of Finale and housed by the exhibition room of the Archeological Museum in Finale.
Since 29 April 2010 I have held the exhibition “Dubai e dintorni”, a choice of my photos from my picture story in the Persian Gulf.
I have had the chance to photograph big figures of the society such as: Eva Herzigova, Oliviero Toscani, Gino Paoli, Markus Stockhausen, Eleonora Giorgi, Irene Grandi, Renato Zero, and famous models, Marguerite Guerin (first etoile comedienne in Paris) and Larisa Romanova. I photographed different bands.
I was coauthor of the book “Finale in Famiglia”, publishing house De Ferrari of Genoa.
On 29 May I inaugurated my exhibition “Sherazade” about the teachers and their students of the belly dance school, directed by Marta Vicini.
On 31 October 2010 I went to Nepal with the guide Carlo Mamberto and I did a picture story. The most part of these photos constitute my current exhibition “Namaste”, Nepal: from the Annapurna Circuit to the Chitwan Jungle; I opened it at the Oratory of the Disciplinanti in Finale Ligure and later in Genoa (in September, in the International Poetry Room of Palazzo Ducale) and in other towns.
In May 2012 I realized 8 big panels with Luca Forno and they have been used for conventions about Alzheimer. The pictures are inspired by the Horticultural Therapy conducted by the doctors of Galliera Hospital in Genoa under Prof. Ernesto Palummeri and cooperative’s charge. The exhibition’s supervisor was Marco Riolfo.
“I love thinking there is something magic in photography. I can have the power to stop every single moment and the time forever”.
