The Time Warp Photographer
on 01 February 2014
Berlin-based, Hungarian-born Adam Magyar isn't your usual photographer; he travels around the world with his industrial camera which has custom add-ons, like a scanner. His prototype shoots at 56 times the normal speed; 12 seconds of blurred motion can transform into 12 minutes of extremely slow motion. Time slows down to a halt at a subway station during rush hour, allowing the rare opportunity to look at each and every person closely, like a group portrait of sorts. He improves the quality of images shot in non-optimal conditions by writing complex software, for example, to reduce noise and distortion.
