The research field is high resolution digital photography using image capture and processing techniques in experimental ways. 'London Riverscape' is a project photographing both banks of the River Thames to remake the continuous panorama as far as Bow Creek.

In 2003 the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich commissioned Graham Diprose to create a permanent exhibit as part of its gallery showing the development of London’s waterways. This exhibit consists of a digital photographic panorama of London’s riverscape and texts which provide details of building, monuments and other commissions, and required substantial updating of earlier work.

This was necessary for two reasons. Firstly, there had been rapid and significant changes to London’s riverside built environment. Secondly, it enabled the researcher to take advantage of new advances in image capture and processing in order to combine these in experimental ways to create the core panoramic images for National Maritime Museum visitors to experience.

With two co-researchers (Peter Canning and Mike Seaborne) a screen based interactive exhibit of London’s panorama has been commissioned for installation into the Museum of London new 20th Century Gallery which opened in 2009. This will differ from the National Maritime’s exhibit in that it will be interactive, and incorporate extracts from the Museum of London’s archive of oral history.
