Toronto Timelapse Javin

New timelapse shows off Toronto in all its majesty

Toronto has been the subject of its fair share of timelapses over the last few years, some of which have been better than others. Admittedly, it's hard to do something entirely new on a thematic level — the point of these works, after all, is to assemble a series of scenes that show off the city at its majestic best. Narrative isn't the name of the game. What makes each one different from the next is the new views of the city that a given photographer has sussed out for our collective delectation. Why make it more complicated than that?

The latest timelapse to join a local collection that includes strong efforts from Ryan Emond and Tom Ryaboi comes from Javin Lau (who, in the interest of disclosure, I should note shoots for blogTO from time to time). While there are few vantage points common to the work of all three, there's plenty of new stuff here to warrant hitting the play button.

Enjoy.
