French photographer Greg Florent spent two months in Hungary so he’d be able to capture the magic of Budapest, the country’s capital city. During this time, the artist photographed thousands of images so he could later create compositions showcasing both day and night in a single shot. Florent primarily focused these photos on Budapest’s architectural landmarks, which are works of art in themselves. The resulting snapshots thus hone in on these structures, while the backdrop features a gradient that goes from day to night (or from night to day).
“Buda… Pest… two characters separated by the Danube,” writes Florent, when describing this series. “Day… night… two atmospheres separated by an invisible thread. Budapest, ‘pearl of Danube’, knows how to seduce at any hour, so why choose, when one can enjoy all its charms at the same time?”
Below, we’ve also included the Budapest Daylight time-lapse, which Florent created to summarize his project.
