The Redundant Photography of Fred Lebain

fred06Photo: Fred Lebain

French photographer Fred Lebain took a trip to New York City and took a series of photos around town. He then revisited those sites after printing out huge poster versions of his shots. Then he carefully re-aligned the shots to incorporate his previous image into a new, dynamically interesting one.

these postcard images show lebain’s preference for particular areas of the city,
telescoping his views – a time parallax representing the days which separate the two shots -
and superimposing his vision of new york. hands, feet or a pair of jeans can be seen…
like surrealistic winks, indicating that the photographer is not alone in his mission.
