African Cities Come to Life in Mayeul Akpovi’s Time-Lapse Photographs

African Cities Come to Life in Mayeul Akpovi's Time-Lapse Movies
Mayeul Akpovi, a Beninese photographer and filmmaker has added what is an important creative contribution to the perception of African cities. His work revolves around capturing and curating visual arts portraying African cities such as Benin, Lome and Abidjan.

Mayeul’s time-lapse photography, as it is with any other time-lapse photography, captures images of the cities shown below, by taking lots of photos and putting them all together to be played back very fast.

Born in Cotonou (Benin), Mayeul Akpovi is an all-round beninese photographer. A studied information scientist, Mayeul only started to make photographs by the end of 2011 in Besançon (France) from a personal insight. He sees himself more a photographer than a filmmaker.
