Elqui Domos Architecture Timelapse by James Florio

View all 32 Photos

Photographer James Florio is well familiar with the power of dedication. His commitment to Elqui Domos Architecture Timelapse can be quantified by six months of work, over 23,000 photos, and 300GB of data. The time-lapse and stop motion project, primarily composed of photographs instead of video, captures the interaction of the natural and constructed over the passage of time. The architectural protagonist, Hotel Elqui Domos in Pisco Elqui, Chile, remains powerfully geometric as stars wheel overhead and as clouds dance about the surrounding mountains. The glow of bonfires and the whistling wind through the trees provide gentle relaxation for the senses and great departure from the hustle and bustle of the city streets. Tempting in its luxuries and richness of experience, Elqui Domos is portrayed as a romantic dreamscape for the weary urbanite as well as the free spirit.
