17 Countries in 5 Minutes

A friend of mine just posted this beautiful time-lapse documentary of Kien Lam’s year-long journey around the world. The music was composed by Kien’s brother, specifically for the video.

It’s just plain gorgeous photography. What struck me while watching it was how the city I live in, and other places that I’ve visited (many of which I would consider “mundane”) seemed new and unfamiliar from his eyes. And other places that I’ve never been to seemed somehow familiar and everyday.

We are one world.

Kien posted the story of his journey here. Enjoy
