At once wondrous and astounding, this series of unusual composites depicting birds in flight examines motion.
Spanish photographer Xavi Bou tries to capture motion that may be alien to the human eye in a project called, Ornitographies. After exploring chronophotography, a 150-year-old technique in which many photographs are combined in sequence to mimic movement.
Bou then took the images into Photoshop bring all of them together and stitch the birds together to give that corkscrew appearance we see in the results. The chaotic configuration makes the swarm of birds look like some kind of elongated alien creature. Creepy!
