In the winter of 1991-92, photographer Alexey Titarenko documented a cold, gloomy day, in the midst of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Titarenko created a series of long exposure photos that he called City of Shadows, that truly captures a dark moment.
“City of Shadows” Long exposure photographs of crowds moving through the streets of St. Petersburg from the “City of Shadows” project by Russian photographer Alexey Titarenko
After the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, photographer Alexey Titarenko observed how St. Petersburg streets that used to be lively and filled with joyful people had suddenly turned dark and gloomy, with people confused, malnourished, and worn out. He decided to capture this change by shooting the streets at slow shutter speeds, turning the downtrodden crowds into shadowy figures. He titled the resulting project “City of Shadows“.

I love how creepy this one looks. It's a long exposure with obvious purposefulness. Again, why was the image taken except to show a ghostly image of a creepy stalker girl there?
sometimes we have to break all the rules and we've got something beautiful
