Timelapse of the Day: How Nature Changes in a New York Year

A seasonal tribute to New York City.

Samuel Orr

We've seen timelapses of night and day, rain and sun, bustling train stations and deserted streets.

Samuel Orr, a photographer and filmmaker whose work leans towards the natural world, wants to create a timelapse of New York over the four seasons. Such a video, aimed to be between 20 and 30 minutes long, could capture snowfall, plant growth, fall colors, ice floes, creeping crabs, fog, and all the other "natural" events of New York City that mark the calendar year: sledding, parades, fireworks, protests, baseball, et al.

That project, New York Year, is currently soliciting donations on Kickstarter. But in the meantime -- as a sort of teaser -- Orr has produced New York Day, which gives donors a taste of what's to come.
