Many photo series have recently revolved around the long exposure technique, especially nighttime landscapes shoots, but the Open Shutter project takes this technique to a whole new level. Instead of minutes, the shutter speed featured in this unique photo series lasts years.

Shot by German photographer Michael Wesely, the Open Shutter photo series is a ghostly gallery of images. It is filled with sun streaks and trails along with remnants of passing time that is represented through ethereal individuals and architectural development.

My Modern Met notes that the Open Shutter series, "is a living memory of the time, place, and the people who passed through the space, while the surrounding buildings stand crisp and clear, never changing across the years."
