Exploring drifting cities and landscapes and skipping time with Jacob Felländer

Things constantly change as time goes by. Swedish photographer Jacob Felländer delicately captures the beauty of change as space drifts over time with his overlapping images of different cities and landscapes.

Strong imagery comes in many forms. For this photographer, he used time and space as his main inspirations and photographs as his medium. The visual representation of time and space may be difficult to portray but photographer Jacob Felländer transforms just that with his visions using his old analogue cameras. His brilliant panoramas and overlapping images offer us a view of a changing world right before our eyes.

Exploring the idea of drifting spaces and time, Felländer composes these stunning photographs by advancing his film cameras ever so slightly so as to weave various places into one striking and flowing image. Each overlapping image tells us of a different story with motion. And to think that we are the ones who keep moving constantly in this world.

Felländer merges different continents into a single flowing frame, juxtaposing perspectives and challenging ideas of space, and time itself. It goes to show that there is more to panoramas than just a wide-angled view of our surroundings; they can also make us stand still and notice that world we live in also moves with us.
