Over the last year photographer Jeff Frost worked tirelessly to amass a collection of over 150,000 images which he used to create the timelapse that you are about to see. According to Jeff, the inspiration for this timelapse started last summer when riots broke out in his neighborhood.
I climbed onto my landlord’s roof and started timelapsing the unfolding events. When the smoke cleared I sent the footage to several news agencies, but no one knew what to do with it so I decided to create art out of news.
The whole project was filmed with his Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 60D paired with a Canon 16-35mm II and a Sigma 10-22mm, as well as a few Canon speedlights. The project grew to a size he never could have predicted, topping 150,000 images. In hopes of being able to spend time on the project further he even started a Kickstarter campaign (ends Sept 13th) for people to help support the project and help him complete it.
