Mayeul Akpovi is a Paris based photographer and a brilliantly talented one, at that. Two years ago, Mayeul shot a multi-part timelapse, hyperlapse and stop-motion video of the city of Paris, Paris In Motion, and over the course of five parts, he has captured parts of the city like the Eglise Saint-Eustache, Place de la Bastille, Le Louvre, Les champs Elysées and L’Arc de Triomphe among others. Mayeul’s project around Paris consisted of over 50,000 images shot frame by frame on a Canon setup.

Videos like these are monumental in showcasing a photographer or film maker’s talent, effort and commitment and also serve as a means to help a far flung audience to take in the culture, sights and ambiance of a city.
