Photographer and “filmer” Michael Shainblum was looking for a new way to depict the cityscapes which he loves. This love combined with his time lapse skills created Mirror City a mesmerizing time lapse combined of mirrored photographs.
The movie combines the great American cities Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles giving each a kaleidoscope, unique and disorienting look.
Here is how Michael describes the video:
“I wanted to put man-made geometric shapes, mixed with elements of color and movement to create less of a structured video, and more of a plethora of visual stimulation.
The video starts off with simple mirrors and recognizable architecture, as the video progresses, so does the visual stimulation, showing the real abstraction of the piece.”#
