Captivating Video of New York City Captured in Reverse

New York City based photographer Henry Akerman recently captured some relatively mundane video clips around the City’s touristy areas, but then did something magical with them. Akerman edited them together completely in reverse. The varying playback speeds of the clips, combined with the audio also being reversed creates an interestingly haunting and compelling look at the City from a slightly different perspective. My favorite shot is the final one with the escalators. Without that one stair-taker, you would not even be able to tell it was in reverse.
