Miniature Shanghai

January 5, 2010

Back in August’s Culture section of AsiaLIFE, we ran stills from a film project by expat Joe Nafis called Miniature City Saigon, in which Joe used time lapse and tilt shift photography to animate the city “in miniature.”

Recently, Joe got in contact with us from his new home in Yantai, China to let us know he’s put together a new tilt shift film, this time of Shanghai. Check it out below. It may take a few minutes to load, but patient–it’s worth it.
