During the peak of tourist season in Paris, France it is nearly impossible to visit any famous site and not be surrounded by crowds. This makes it difficult to photograph a monument without capturing tourists milling about. I decided to make the crowd the subject of the photo, taking a time lapse in front of the Arc De Triomphe. The long shutter time created a ghostly effect of the tourists loitering in the frame. The longer someone stood still the clearer and more opaque their figure became. When someone’s photo was taken with a flash, their clear but transparent figure became etched on the scene.
