We’ve already had our trip around the world with the striking photoart of Corinne Vionnet and maybe some of you heard of “Le Flâneur”, a stunning video of Paris created by combining 2,000 photos of the city of love by night. And now, within my arm-chair wanderlust last night, I came across “Around the world in 2000 pictures”, a photo journey through 8 cities. Photographer and video artist Alex Profit provides us with a walk through Paris, Barcelona, Tokyo, St. Petersburg, London, Berlin, Shanghai and New York (which isn’t a real world trip as all of you Travelettes will know, but we’ll leave that aside…).

Especially the segues between cities are really well done and the fact that there are absolutely no people on the photographs leaves me with a slight imagination of how much effort he must have put into the postproduction, as I know shooting in busy Barcelona very well. Have a look at the video below, but beware: It will curse you with incontrollable itchy feet of visiting one of the cities, as it happened with me feeling a bad urge to hop on a plane to my beloved BCN.

But anyway, enjoy!
