Stop Motion Video of Yonge Street

This week for Torontoist, I interviewed Ismail Atiev about his amazing stop motion video of Yonge Street.

It took fourteen hours to capture the photos necessary for this video. Atiev and his friend, D.J. Tataev, stayed ten metres apart for the duration of the trip, and turned to take each others' photos every thirty steps or so.

The two walked forty-two kilometres from Yonge and Wellington Streets in Aurora to the beginning of Yonge Street at Queens Quay in Toronto.
