Timelapse Video of People in Yosemite

People in Yosemite: A TimeLapse Study from Steven M. Bumgardner on Vimeo.

Steven Bumgardner’s video clearly shows the impact of people on Yosemite, but it also shows how the magnificence of the setting reduces people to the scale of insects. The time-lapse element is reminiscent of Koyaanisqatsi.

I chose busy places during busy days to show the effects of this mass of humanity. I could have just as easily pointed my camera in another direction and shown nothing but plants, animals and wilderness. Yosemite is popular, but it’s also still a relatively wild place.
