Artist Stacks Time Lapse Photos To Show The Evolution Of A Sunset [Pics]

Artist Stacks Time Lapse Photos To Show The Evolution Of A Sunset [Pics]

By layering countless exposures, Matt Molloy explores a method of capturing the passage of time in one image.

Photographer Matt Molloy creates ‘smeared’ skies by stacking hundreds of photos together from a time-lapse project to create one picture that has a dual effect. This is created by overlapping all the exposures, meaning each image may house hundreds of layers tracking the subtle movements happening in the sky.

As a consequence, the skyline looks as if it is moving through time, while the bottom half of the picture is perfectly still. The artist finds himself drawn to sunsets, starry nights, and unique cloud movements.
