40 photographers, 35,000 pictures: one mesmerising timelapse video of London

40 photographers have taken over 35,000 pictures to create a stunning timelapse video of our city. 

After responding to a call-out from organiser Haje Jan Kamps, 40 photographers assembled for the challenge of capturing London in a day.

The photographers taking part ranged from professionals to simply keen hobbyists - but the results are all remarkable.  

All the pictures were captured in one single day and show the vibrancy and beauty of London over 24 hours. 

One of the photographers who helped put the project together was Chad Gordon Higgins. He joined Haje on Wake Up London to discuss the ambition project. 

They explain why bringing so many people together for such a huge project was so much fun and why the inspiration behind the video was, in part, the loneliness of being a photographer.  


They explain why framing the photographs within the context of time helps capture the spirit and movement within the city. 

Haje and Chad say they hope to do another video soon - although sadly London may be overlooked in favour of Hawaii. 

See the full interview with Haje and Chad below. 



TriggerTrap, Haje's company, also made this documentary explaining how they made the video. With thanks to TriggerTrap for the video.
