NYT: Big Pictures for a Big City

This weekend’s New York Times has a great article on Jeff Liao, a photographer who takes urban panoramas.  His photos capture light and details that can’t be captured in a single exposure.  Sometimes he takes “a couple of hundred” frames of scenes like Times Square where only a sliver of pedestrians are in sharp focus, while the backgrounds goes soft.  Check out his photo gallery online in full screen.  They’re pretty amazing.  Some of my favorites are below.
