Time is absolute, the experience of time varies.

Some days fly by and some days drag on forever.

It’s our personal perception of time that we have to live with

Villes Enteintes / Thierry Cohen

World’s major cities as they would appear at night without light pollution from the series Villes Enteintes aka Darkened Cities by French photographer Thierry Cohen

Cohen’s method is original and precise and harkens back to the methodologies employed by early 19th century photographers like Gustave Le Grey.  He photographs the world’s major cities, seeking out views that resonate for him and noting the precise time, angle, and latitude and longitude of his exposure.  As the world rotates around its axis the stars that would have been visible above a particular city move to deserts, plains, and other places free of light pollution.  By noting the precise latitude and angle of his cityscape, Cohen is able to track the earth’s rotation to places of atmospheric clarity like the Mojave, the Sahara, and the Atacama desert.  There he sets up his camera to record what is lost to modern urban dwellers.
