I think it’s fascinating that when I crawl into bed at night, friends on the other side of the world are getting ready for work. Or maybe they’re coincidentally doing the exact same thing as I am.
It might very well be this same fascination for space and time that triggered the makers of Jetlag. Two photographers, one in the US and the other in Iceland, took pictures at the same moment over a period of 12 hours – like a mix of Room for thought and Tworlds – but without the selfies and cute pets. The result: a split screen photo report of two worlds and two time zones, creating a sense of competition, but also unity.
The site’s navigation and transitions are simple and smooth. Click on one of the pictures to let the centre line shift slowly to the side until the picture takes over the entire screen. Scroll down, and you move further through time, through a tasteful page transition inspired by the earth’s meridians.
The further in time I scroll, the more the sense of competition fades. It gives way to the realisation that wherever you are and whatever time it is, there’s always something beautiful to see.
