Rare Look From Behind The Lens Of A Professional Street Photographer

Great street photography takes a unique sensibility; such evocative snapshots often carry a kind of mystique with them. But professional camera wielder Markus Hartel made a video taking us right along for the ride, shooting on a rainy New York City evening.

Markus’s idea was simple: mount an iPhone right next to his Leica M9 and press record, preserving the seconds before and after he froze a moment in time. It’s fascinating to see how fleeting each moment is, and how beautiful the stills can be when compared with the banality of the video footage. Makes you want to slow things down a little, yourself.
