Atomium was built in Brussels in 1958 for the Brussels World’s Fair. It was designed by engineer André Waterkeyn and shaped in the form of a unit cell of an iron crystal, only enlarged 165 billion times!
All images of Atomium are copyright Atomium, but I was extremely fortunate to be allowed full access, after hours to create this project, purely for the love of photography, time-lapse and architecture and design.
I want to thank everyone at Atomium for making me feel welcome and granting me access. I am eternally grateful!
I shot this time-lapse over 5 nights and 2 days in my spare time whilst on a working trip to Brussels. In all I shot 27 sequences on my Canon 5Dii in CR2 (small) for speed of processing. I didn’t need to be creating anything above 1920×1080 for this project.
I was also extremely fortunate and thrilled to work again with my good friend Athar Saeed, who has once again crafted a fantastic soundtrack! THANK YOU Athar!
