Alexey Titarenko. Saint-Petersbourg. Foule montant un escalier. Cette photo démontre que la photographie n'est pas "objective" : elle voit le temps à l'œuvre, contrairement à nous qui n'"imprimons pas".

This image was taken by Alexey Titarenko and the image is from his photo series of the 'City Of Shadows'. By altering the camera's shutter speed, he has captured ghost like images of the people within the fall of the soviet union.
