Photographers have shot landmarks as monuments frozen in time both during the day and at night. The resulting photographs generally portray the time an image was captured, but New York-based photographer Richard Silver's new photo series, Time Slice, shakes up conventional practice.

The series, shot around the world, depicts landmarks shot from day to night using 36 photos shot from the same location, using a tripod and a wireless remote. Unusual, if not splendid, are the resulting kaleidoscopic time-lapses which initiate a questioning of one's sobriety. Silver, who is a travel photographer, started the project in 2010, has also used the tilt shift method in prior series.
