Photographer Merges Hundreds Of Images To Create A Chaotic Over-Populated World


With many experts predicting that the world population will hit 11 billion by 2100, Boston-based photographer Pelle Cass‘s fascinating series Selected People might be a stark warning of what’s to come.

Choosing a specific location – a street corner or park – he takes hundreds of exposures of the same spot during an entire day. He then takes his work back to his studio to merge the images and create layer after layer of people, traffic and wildlife. The result is often chaotic scenes that show us a glimpse of what could be an over-populated world.


Cass explains: “This work both orders the world and exaggerates its chaos. With the camera on a tripod, I take many dozens of pictures, and simply leave in the figures I choose and omit the rest.”


“The photographs are composite, but nothing has been changed, only selected. My subject is the strangeness of time, the exact way people look, and a surprising world that is visible only with a camera.”
