Long Exposures + Facebook Albums = Gorgeously Layered Photos


We sign in, and within 10 minutes, we’ve seen photo albums of our our Art History professor’s gem collection and our crush’s trip to the Kennedy Space Center (swoon!).

Facebook hands us a magnifying glass, showing us see each others’ lives in an astoundingly close-up view.

Phillip Maisel got to thinking about that – about technology, photographs, and how memories are stored and shared.

He grabbed his digital camera, and setting it on a long exposure, took a photo of his computer screen while he clicked through a Facebook photo album.

The result? Gorgeously layered photographs that resemble double or triple exposures.

A day, a trip, or even a month’s worth of photos all relived in one photo! There’s something pretty magical there.

So, the next time you find yourself flipping through Facebook albums, see what happens when you set your camera in front of your screen! (’causewebetit’llbeamaaazing!)
