This beautiful project captures the restlessness of New York in a perfect way. Taking over a thousand pictures of famous places in the city over a 10-hour period and combining them together with computer aid he made a whole day appear in only one image. His passion for photography is well exposed in his Day and Night series. Most of the pictures taken were in New York and the construction of the photographs combines technical knowledge with the keen eye of a true artist.
