“City of Shadows”

From BldgBlog comes this item about an amazing set of time exposure images taken in St. Petersburg, Russia by photographer Alexey Titarenko.

The most interesting images (from a set entitled “City of Shadows”) depict crowds of people moving through the city. The time exposures have transformed the moving groups of people into dark, massive clouds (the image of a swarm comes to mind, too).

Individual identity has dissolved and only incidental details (hands moving up stair railings, for example) are visible.
