    Zoom Out through Multiple Photos


      I am new to After Effects and am trying to replicate a similar sequence from an After Effects file someone previously made at my firm. It is a zooming out effect that zooms from a closeup photo of NYC (the empire state building) through several photos to finally a photo of the globe. I don't understand how the zoom effect was achieved, as there is no camera layer (that is how I've seen it done in many instructional videos). I also don't understand how the layers of photos work, because it seems as though all of the photo layers are on through the whole timeline. Shouldn't they overlap each other and cause a mess? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
