Artist Matt Molloy is a photographer who captures time as it occurs. His photographs are essentially collages of hundreds of photographs he has taken of the same image over a period of time, allowing us to view an entire sunset in one single moment.

Molloy explained his technique to Digital Photo Mag, “To make them, I use a time-lapse sequence as my source […] Timestacks are really a distillation of a video into a single picture. The movements of clouds often look like brushstrokes and give the image a painterly feel. It gives you a different perspective of time and a unique sense of motion.”
