Stainless: Mesmerizing Super Slow-Motion Footage of People Waiting for the Subway

Slow motion video is often mesmerizing, whether it shows creamer being poured ever so luxuriously into coffee, or a dog shaking off water. But the super slow motion series Stainless by photographer Adam Magyar put all of those to shame.

For this series, which is actually a video version of a stills series of his by the same name, Magyar boarded the subway and rode it into Grand Central station in New York, the Alexanderplatz station in Berlin, and the Shinjuku station in Tokyo with a slow motion camera in tow.

As he pulled into the station, Magyar shot slow motion footage of the people sitting in wait for their train at 720p and 50fps. The resulting footage shows, in Magyar’s words:

An endless row of living sculptures brought together by the same subway line, the same direction, the same intention of taking the train to get caught and carried away by the urban flow. All their motions slowed down, they are graceful and stainless, holding their breath waiting for their train to pull into the station.

Here’s another excerpt, followed by one of the full 11 minute videos from the stainless series:

If ever a video series deserved the title of mesmerizing, this is probably it. To see more of Magyar’s work, both still and motion, head over to his website by clicking here.
