Spectral Timelapses


Extremely long (2 year) exposures of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Berlin’s Potsdamer Platz by German photographer Michael Wesley.

Wesley, who has been taking these necropolitan images for his Open Shutter project since the early 90s, uses filters and tiny apertures on his locked-off cameras to reduce the amount of light striking the film.

Naturally, there’s a coffee table book.
