Astrophysicist’s Multiple Exposures Reveal Lively Depictions of the World

Reinhold Adscheid is an astrophysicist who wondered what it would be like to see the world from different perspectives at the same time. So, he began taking multiple photographs of the same scenes and stitching them together into one, single image. He calls his process the “chrono-chorotic technique, which gives the possibility to explore the known and, in the same time, unknown world.” The results are these dizzying compositions filled with rich colors and captivating shapes.

By merging various views of one place together, the artist creates a sense of movement across otherwise static images. His world becomes alive with people and places that gradually reveal themselves to the viewer as though part of a magical puzzle. Many of the scenes have a painterly quality to them, appearing as soft blurs of color and form, and viewers are invited to fill in the gaps, creating unique narratives based on the visual clues.
