Michael Shainblum’s Mirror City

Last week in the midst of the move, I came across a still shot from Michael Shainblum’s “Mirror City,” and I was blown away when I unearthed the video itself.

Shainblum turns timelapse videos of urban environments into a kaleidoscopic love letter for anyone who has ever fallen for a city.

Be sure to watch the behind the scenes video as well; it’s fascinating to catch a glimpse of the techniques used for the dizzying “Mirror City” shots. Footage is flipped and mirrored in post-production, but the movement that Shainblum captures in¬†filming is soothing and mesmerizing.
