in love ... with michael wesely.

german photographer michael wesely is well-known for his long-exposure photography, with some of his photos lasting as long as three years.  since the camera remains stationary for the duration of the exposure, it catches every moment that passes in that time, and the layers and layers of information add up to create something that seems ghostly, almost magical.  i love how you feel yourself experiencing each moment in time, all at once.  some of his more notable work documents the construction of the moma in NY (first two) as well as the potzdamer platz in berlin (next two), but he also does shorter exposures with other subjects that still create a stunning effect.  i would love to see more with even longer exposures!
