Antwerp is a city in Flanders, Belgium. It consists of 9 districts and has about 521.000 citizens as of january 2013.
I shot approximately 3000 photographs in my beautiful hometown with my Canon 600D in november 2012 using the hyperlapse technique, where you take a small step between every photo to create big continuus movements.
The photos are stabilised and combined in After Effects or similar software to make videofiles.
These videofiles were edited in Sydney, Australia one year after shooting.
The track is called 'Antwarpe' by De Strangers, many people (including myself) say it's the "official" Antwerp Anthem.

Atomium was built in Brussels in 1958 for the Brussels World's Fair. It was designed by engineer André Waterkeyn and shaped in the form of a unit cell of an iron crystal, only enlarged 165 billion times!
All images of Atomium are copyright Atomium, but I was extremely fortunate to be allowed full access, after hours to create this project, purely for the love of photography, time-lapse and architecture and design.
I want to thank everyone at Atomium for making me feel welcome and granting me access. I am eternally grateful!
I shot this time-lapse over 5 nights and 2 days in my spare time whilst on a working trip to Brussels. In all I shot 27 sequences on my Canon 5Dii in CR2 (small) for speed of processing. I didn't need to be creating anything above 1920x1080 for this project.
I was also extremely fortunate and thrilled to work again with my good friend Athar Saeed, who has once again crafted a fantastic soundtrack! THANK YOU Athar!

A few people have asked, and I wanted to re-iterate that the Atomium team was kind enough to grant me full written permission to shoot. Atomium is copyrighted.# vimeo.com/73494684 Uploaded 189K Plays 1,721 Likes 81 Comments
