Time slice photos  SEP 08 2010

Photographer Adam Magyar uses scanner cameras to take these huge panoramic photos which are a little difficult to explain.

Adam uses the same technologies as the finish line cameras at the Olympic Games, which take thousands of images a second and records through a 1 pixel wide slit. The time and space slices are then placed next to one another to generate an image without perspective. This method is capable of recording movement only, with static objects and buildings appearing as stripes and lines.

Here's just a small slice of one of his photos...you'll notice that it does look an awful lot like the photo-finish photos of sprinters.
