From the Roman Colosseum to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the border between day and night blurs in travel photographer Richard Silver's latest series, Time Slice Global, a collection of timeslice photos that capture sunsets over the world's architectural wonders. In a process similar to Dan Marker-Moore's process of dicing skyline imagery, Silver repeatedly snaps identical pictures over the course of an evening, like taking a timelapse, and stitches 36 moments together to make one single frame.

Silver first experimented with the process in his home of New York City, but now takes it on his travels. The results cast well-known monuments in an entirely new light. "I plan my own trips to locations around the world that I want to see and have been doing this for many years now," Silver tells The Creators Project. Currently, he has two other ongoing projects that are growing with each country he visits—timeslicing is his third. "Once I figure out a series that I want to do I encompass it into my travels," he explains.
