We present 1/2 square degree uBVRI imaging around the Hubble Deep Field -- South. The images were obtained with the Big Throughput Camera at CTIO in 1998 September. We will discuss the broad-band photometry of this field and present the statistics of ~50000 galaxies, including number-magnitude counts and clustering properties. The deep field was chosen for the presence of the z=2.25 QSO J2233-606, which has multiple absorption systems that may mark large scale structures. We also discuss the color distribution of galaxies and u-band dropouts. We compare our photometric measurements with the high resolution images available from the HST observations. We will make the images and catalogs presented here available over the WWW.
