New York-based photographer Richard Silver captures how buildings and monuments change in appearance from day to night. Instead of exploring this in several images, however, he shows the progression in a single photograph. Silver’s ongoing series is titled Time Slice, and it gives us an interesting perspective into places like the Colosseum in Rome or the Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul. We see how the mood of a locale changes once the sun starts to set.
To construct these pictures, Silver shoots about 36 photographs at intervals over several hours and then combines them into one composition. The result is a cohesive-looking image where we see the entire building or monument mixed with wonderful bits of abstraction. Looking closely at each individual sliver, there are fragments of different people that were visiting that day.
