The Year Of Living Photographically of the Day: In the twilight hours of 2011, photographer Michael Chrisman made his way to Toronto’s Port Lands to pick up the pin-hole camera he had trained on Hogtown’s skyline 365 days before.
The year-long experiment in extreme exposure yielded the “snapshot” above.
“I’m thrilled with it,” Chrisman told The Star. “It’s a very dreamy photo. This one has a soft and kind of foggy feel.”
What the publication refers to as a “time-lapse painting” took approximately 31,536,000 seconds to complete.
But that was the easy part.
“The biggest difficulty,” Chrisman said, “is trying to ensure the camera will be there when you return.”
This time he got lucky. And the result was worth the wait.
