Neb. photographers use time-lapse to capture flooding Collin

LINCOLN — Michael Forsberg said he sees each of the over 60 cameras he’s placed around Nebraska as a library full of imagery.

“It’s seen change take place over time in that one spot in that frame,” he said. “It’s like a living history book almost, a visual history book.”

The cameras’ photos are part of the Platte Basin Timelapse, a project founded in 2011 by Forsberg and Michael Farrell, both photographers. Since its creation, more than 2 million photographs have been taken around the state, forming a timelapse of the 90,000 square-mile basin.
