New York-based artist Pelle Cass turns thousands of images into beautiful time-lapse photographs for his series Selected People. It kind of feels like trick photography, but it takes a discerning eye, a quick trigger finger and a lot of editing. Here’s how he does it.
As you can see in this short film from the Creators Project, Cass will set up his camera in one location — in this case he’s at the High Line, a NYC park built on an old elevated railway — and snap thousands of pictures at a time. Then, he goes into Photoshop and takes the most interesting people, plopping them into a single file.
The resulting images show ordinary places filled with extraordinary things, like hundreds of people wearing the same colour or thousands of squirrels. Pretty amazing stuff. [Creators Project]
