You think you're looking at a busy urban square, filled with people milling around. You're not. This crowd never existed, and neither did the place. But the people are all real. Photographic magic.

Each photo is actually a composite of hundreds, created by photographer Adam Magyar from individual portraits raised only ten or so feet off the ground. Stitch 'em together, zoom out, and you've got what appears to be a packed town square. What a wonderfully executed and cleverly pretty illusion. [Adam Magyar via Ignant via PetaPixel]
