Time-lapse photographer Michael Shainblum has released a new 4K time-lapse short film titled “Liberty” that beautifully captures the scale, beauty, and pace of New York City.
“I vividly remember my first experience of New York City as a kid, before I became a photographer,” Shainblum writes. “The sheer sense of scale, the incredible architecture and just the overall feeling I got walking around the city. That experience became one of the reasons I got into photography.”
“Ever since then, it has been my dream to recreate that feeling into a short timelapse film. From the sensory overload of standing on a busy New York street corner. To the tranquility of standing on a skyscraper, like being on top of the world. This is a dedication to my favorite city in the world.”
The timelapse (and hyperlapse) was created with roughly 15,000 still photos Shainblum shot in New York City between 2016 and 2018.
