Fall Into This Mesmerising Timelapse of Famous European Buildings

By Lily Newman on at

Even if you've never seen them in person, we've all gotten glimpses of places like the Arc de Triomphe on television, in magazines or wherever. And most likely those brief encounters have even been high res. But Luke Shepard's Nightvision takes images of famous European architecture to a whole stunning new level.

The project involved shooting in 36 cities in 21 countries over the course of three months. Shepard combined thousands of photos, stabilised in post-production, to create the video above. Maybe it's the night lighting or the effects used to homogenise the photos, but the result is a sort of surreal aesthetic. The landmarks look so perfect that you sort of feel like you're falling into them. And the piece really plays with depth and scale. Take a gander over your Monday lunch. [Vimeo Staff Picks]
