A Hyper Colorful Time-Lapse of Kuala Lumpur in 19,997 Still Photographs

More

Photographer Rob Whitworth spent months capturing the city by day and by night, shooting thousands of images to make the video below. Yahoo! Malaysia has the exact numbers: "5 months. 400 hours of solid work. 4 cameras. 40 shoots. 640 gigabytes of file space. 19,997 photographs." Amped up colors and contrast make the video feel a little like an airbrushed postcard, but the city's neon lights really pop. Whitworth wanted to document "super-modern buildings juxtaposed with various cultural enclaves ... with a little of Asia’s chaos thrown in." You might recognize his style from his jaw-dropping time-lapse video of traffic in Ho Chi Minh City
