Dutch filmmaker Frans Hofmeester is the Steven Speilberg of time-lapse portraiture. Hofmeester’s short films are composed of hundreds of video clips of children aging from infancy to their early teens.
They’re stunning works of art that capture time’s gradual march through intimate details. Frans Hofmeester has filmed his now teenage daughter portrait for 15 seconds every week from the day she was born. Over a time-lapse video, you are witness to one of the most mysterious, profound processes of human life – growing up – accelerated into four minutes.
