Ever since posting about Mike Matas‘s journey through Morocco & Spain, I’ve been fascinated by the use of still photography to create a voyage through a place. Now I’m in complete awe of American University of Paris student Luke Shepard who has created a breathtaking look at Paris with Le Flâneur. I love the lack of people in it, and the mood it creates. Just watch.

That is so cool. Loved it! I took a studio lighting class last fall and the professor made a similar video of the class. Stop-motion, is it called?

Yes, stop motion or timelapse. It’s my new favorite! Thanks for sharing the video from your class, Risamay! Looks fun :)

I’m going to have to learn how to do it and give it a go on my trips this year. Thank you for the inspiration. Wouldn’t have thought to apply it to travel. If anything worth watching comes of my attempts, I’ll let you know!

It’s so beautiful! What a luck we have to live here, don’t you think?

Indeed, the mood of Le Flaneur is intoxicating. It reminds me of my lone walks through that city many years ago.
