I shot this clip in 2007, together with my partner in business Timo Kurrat, as part of a journey onboard a container ship from Hamburg in Germany to Shanghai. We produced these city portraits as bonus material and simply because we´ve been dreaming of visiting after having completed the NYC timelapse. Enjoy!
