Danish photographer Simon Hoegsberg spent 20 days on a Berlin railroad bridge, photographing the passersby. Then he stitched together a single, staggering, 100-meter-long composite picture, which you can now scroll online.

The project’s somber title — “We’re All Gonna Die” — is something of a non sequitur. And yet, set against a stark, white sky, Hoegsberg’s 178 subjects do seem otherworldly. The photographer says that only a few knew they were being photographed, and most look like regular folks on the go. But keep an eye out for the middle-aged couple with matching eye bandages, and the dude who did notice a camera, and flipped it the bird. Even in a crowd this big, they know just how to stand out.
