Silent World

With some clever camera trickery, artists Lucie & Simon have captured some of the world’s most populated cities completely devoid of any human activity. The result is a series of unimaginable, apocalyptic-like photos – honestly eerie yet incredibly compelling and cool.

    Wow, this is creepy and beautiful. I don’t know how they managed to get these cities so vacant! It reminds me from something out of the Twilight Zone.

    These are stunning…reminds me of the opening scenes in Vanilla Sky. I used to love to walk to work early in the AM so the whole island of Manhattan feels empty…

    We say from personal experience, these photographs in a densely populated city do very difficult. It should be photographed very early on. The inspiring photos!

  35. I love that they leave one or two people in each picture. It makes it seem so much more eerie. Like that person has no idea that everyone else has vanished and they’re just continuing on with their day. These are so cool.
