Rob Whitworth

Reading through NPR this morning, I ran across Rob Whitworth and his stop motion photography. As we begin to work with animation and photography, I knew this would be a perfect addition to the blog.

Rob takes the most mundane parts of cities: traffic, people crossing streets, etc. and makes them into beautiful pieces of art. Additionally, his pieces touch on a certain cultural commentary. For example, his video on Shanghai features many views of the skyscraper laden skyline juxtaposed by scenes from someone’s kitchen. It’s amazing he creates a video to music of a city with an organically choreographed dance.

Here is the original NPR article:
