Flipping through massive Facebook photo albums with prodigious speed is definitely a 21st century skill, but what would it look like if you photographed that process? Hauntingly beautiful, it turns out.

The photographs, long exposure shots of a computer screen snapped as Facebook albums were rapidly flipped through, were taken by Phillip Maisel as part of a project called "A More Open Place," a quote by Facebook King Mark Zuckerberg himself.

You don't need to over-exposed-photograph all the pictures. It can be made in Photoshop or other.

- Open 1st picture.

- Import 2nd picture in the same window. Give it a 50% transparency (1/2 * 100%) and combine it with background.

- Import 3rd picture. Give it a 67% transparency (2/3 * 100%) and combine it with background.

- Import 4th picture. Give it a 75% transparency (3/4 * 100%) and combine it with background.

- Import 5th picture. Give it a 80% transparency (4/5 * 100%) and combine it with background.

- etc...
