Stainless

Above video is shot by Adam Magyar at Shinjuku station, one of the largest stations in Tokyo.

It’s part of his series of videos called Stainless which he shot with an industrial grade high-performance camera with up to 100,000 frames per second (as compared to the regular 24FPS in normal cameras).
This subsequently allowed him to stretch a split-second of footage over a time of more than 10minutes.

The result is a mesmerising journey into slow-motion land.

Frozen to a near still the people in his videos seems to allow us to read their moods and minds at this point in time.

An endless row of living sculptures brought together by the same subway line, the same direction, the same intention of taking the train to get caught and carried away by the urban flow. All their motions slowed down, they are graceful and stainless, holding their breath waiting for their train to pull into the station.
