Jamila Hodges Uses Motion Photography in the 'Split Cities' Series

On Tumblr, Jamila Hodges has a collection of rotating city images that use motion photography as a way to demonstrate the constantly evolving and moving environment of a bustling city.

The series, called 'Split Cities,' captures two images that are combined together at an angle, creating a whole picture out of two separate components. After a couple of seconds, a central vortex opens up and the image is split again into inner circles that spin in alternate directions. Hodges is demonstrating that once you think you understand and know what is happening in an urban setting, things can be flipped upside-down and get distorted.

The use of motion photography in Split Cities adds complexity to the images. Stats for Rotating Urban Landscape Photos Trending: Older & Mild
