Time-lapse photographer Samuel Orr has compiled over 100,000 still photographs to create a beautiful short film of New York City that shows the passing of a day in the Big Apple in a beautiful way.
He spent six week in photographing the city and it he made four separate trips to New York City between 2011 and 2012. Once he had the images he needed, Orr combined them into 30fps time-lapse videos and added “natural sounds of the city you’d hear from various vantages” to each segment, which he says is “lacking in nearly all time-lapse films.”
The short is the first completed piece of a much more ambitious project Orr is working on, which is a time-lapse adventure through the urban and natural landscapes of New York City across four seasons.
He’s planning to travel many more times in NYC, spending several weeks during each trip to capture the fleeting events of each season.
