PetaPixel readers should already be familiar with Eric Paré‘s work. Often a combination of multiple photographic disciplines, his videos offer, if not something unique, then something at the very least different from the multitude of time-lapse, stop-motion and light painting work out there.
His newest project, called WindScale, is a combination of time-lapse and stop-motion that he and a friend created on their way from Montréal to Burning Man in Nevada last year.
The mix makes for an interesting break from your typical landscape time-lapse. Although there are plenty of picturesque vistas captured, those vistas are often joined by Paré’s friend Marie-Line Migneault. By timing her movements to the click of the shutter, she alternates between looking like a stop-motion mannequin and a person somehow moving at normal speed through a sped up world.
“We did it to experiment with stop-motion plus time-lapse,” Paré told us when he got in touch with us about the project. “But above all technical aspects, this was truly a way for us to immortalize this magical moment we spent in the US.”
