Unwrapping Times Square
100 years, 20 photographs, 4 views, 1 location.
Unwrapping Times Square celebrates the crossroads of the world by seamlessly combining over a hundred years into a seamless and spectacular image where decades cascade into one another. The hypnotic result is a beautiful and surreal panoramic photograph, simultaneously instantly familiar and disconcertingly anachronistic at once. It is a physical manifestation of Retronaut's mission to show 'the past like never before'.
Conceived as the centre-piece for Retronaut's New York, Unwrapping Times Square is a literally wall-sized photograph that confuses and delights the viewer in equal measure, a 'timescape', if you will.
