This timelapse is called Chicago, “My home away from home”, and was created by Ludovico Bertè on Vimeo. It is 00:03:39 long. The last time we checked (on March 31st, 2015), it had around 31,000 plays on Vimeo


This is my first time lapse project, which took me 6 months to shoot all around the City of Chicago (from January to June 2013).

This is a tribute to the time I spent as an exchange student (from Milan) in Chicago, “My home away from home”, which were probably the best months of my life. I spent every day walking around the city, looking for the most beautiful places, and trying to sneak up to the top of as many skyscrapers as I could. I did everything I could to try and get the best shot, which was always an adventure!

I tried to capture, in about 4 minutes, the magnificent architecture of this city, its amazing urban spaces, the power of its public transport network, and the vibrancy of all its people. Ultimately, I am trying to convey to those who will watch this video, just some of the experiences and emotions that I had during the best months of my life.

400 GB of images shot by a humble Nikon d3100 and a simple 18-55 lens, with a Manfrotto MKC3-H01 tripod.
