Hypnotic Time-Lapse of Traffic in Ho Chi Minh City

Photographer Rob Whitworth created this time-lapse of the crazy traffic found in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon), Vietnam.

Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the city’s energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.

10,000 individual photos (shot in RAW) went into making this video.

    Why do I feel like the production quality bar just got raised when I watched this?

    OMG – that is just effing crazy.  There seems to be barely any order or control of traffic flow through or around those traffic circles.

    Excellent work of art but surely it must be a mixture of video and time lapse. Anyway it’s the most incredible study of nightmare traffic patterns I have ever seen. Obviously the work of experts.
