It is almost impossible these days to click around the web without running into the work of filmmaker and architectural photographer Rob Whitworth who spends months at a time filming immersive time-lapse videos in some of Asia’s largest cities. Whitworth is currently based in Shanghai where he recently completed his latest film, This is Shangai in conjunction with JT Singh. While often extremely fast-paced it’s amazing to see the filmmaker’s camera move so effortlessly through space, a trick he achieves with the use of extremely high-powered telephoto lenses and other filming techniques. I’ve included two additional videos above which you many have seen elsewhere but are certainly worth another view.

Update: You can read a great interview with Rob over at Asia Blog.

This summer French paper artist Mademoiselle Maurice (previously) took her unique style of urban origami installation to the streets of Hong Kong and Vietnam where she created some of the pieces shown here. To be clear, the hexagonal pieces above were created in Paris just prior to her trip to Asia which you can learn more about (plus see many more photos) on her website.

This past September photographer Wittner Fabrice (previously) had the opportunity to visit Vietnam where he managed to execute a number of his unique light stencils in various locations around the country. Keep in mind these are not digital, but rather long-exposure photos created with lights shone through large cut stencils. Though I really enjoyed Wittner’s previous light paintings commemorating the Christchurch earthquake, the picturesque backdrops of Vietnam as well as a clear improvement in technique make these even more special. See much more of the project here.
