Long Exposures Capture Three Years of New York City Life in One Image

Michael Wesley

When you hear the term “long exposure”, you probably don’t expect it to mean a long exposure process that takes 2-3 years to complete. But in the case of Berlin-based photographer Michael Wesely, a long exposure photo is quite a time commitment. With the help of different filters and an incredibly low aperture setting, Wesely captures the changing scenery of a city scape under construction. Open Shutter seem to literally capture time in these photos documenting the huge facelift undertaken on the MoMA between 2001 and 2004.
