Stainless: Mesmerizing Super Slow-Motion Footage of People Waiting for the Subway.
Filmed in Tokyo, New York and Berlin, Adam Magyar positioned himself on trains as they pulled into subway stops, filming the waiting crowds at 50 frames per second using a high speed camera.
You move by groups and throngs of people, all frozen still, but the camera keeps moving on and on to more and more people. It’s an incredibly engrossing 11 minutes.
The resulting video shows, in Magyar’s words:
An endless row of living sculptures brought together by the same subway line, the same direction, the same intention of taking the train to get caught and carried away by the urban flow. All their motions slowed down, they are graceful and stainless, holding their breath waiting for their train to pull into the station.
