Matthew Vandeputte is generally better known for his timelapse and hyperlapse work than his regular single image photography. But in this project, he decided to kind of merge the two, shooting what is essentially a timelapse in a single exposure that lasted for four months.
Of course, he didn’t use the digital cameras he typically shoots with to create this photo. Instead, Matthew used a process called solargraphy. It uses a pinhole camera and captures the movement of the sun and exposes the scene over a long period of time (4 months in this case) so that you can see how the sun moves through the sky each day, slowly building up the final result.
