For his Places in Time project, Chris Pritchard’s made this time lapse of Chicago, which in our opinion is the most underrated big city in the US. If you’ve ever been and were captivated for even a second, that moment that nips at you in nostalgic flashes is definitely here: the unique colour of the skyline at sunset, the faded light of its stocky buildings, and the sun-kissed, buttery river that weaves through the business district, utterly ignored by the gray suits walking briskly across. Oh, and The Bean. Of course The Bean.
We’re calling it now — slowing things down is the new speeding things up. Holi, a.k.a. the Festival of Colors celebrated by Hindus each spring, provides a gorgeous backdrop for this incredible study of the chromatic spectrum. Trust us, you’re gonna want to experience this festival in full screen.
