Adam Magyar captured New Yorkers standing on the the platform at Grand Central station with a slow motion camera.
I absolutely love this.
BUT…… as one of us who has stood on gajillions of subway platforms, I don’t buy it.
For starters, only one person looking at a handheld device? Maybe I’m on the wrong platforms….or aybe this is pre-Candy Crush.
But that said, again, it really is lovely and mesmerizing.
It’s not a slow-mo camera, actually it’s a slit camera.
Love this. The beauty of it and thinking about all the stories embedded in those face makes me want to sit down and draw.
not slow motion, it’s a slit-scan camera (imagine combining a flatbed scanner with a camera lens which captures 1-pixel width of image at a time). This is important to note because of the artist’s own emphasis on his process, building his own cameras and programming software.
