Switzerland-based Corinne Vionnet shows us some of our most famous landmarks in a brand new way. Though her images look like watercolor paintings, they're actually made of hundreds of tourist photos layered into one. The haunting images are meant to make us think about fading memories and the inevitable passage of time.
Works from Corinne Vionnet-This led her to examine how we select the optimum spot from which to photograph a landmark and how we edit out that which is superfluous to our constructed reality of leisure. Where do we stand at the gateway to the Taj Mahal in order to render its architectural façade in perfect symmetry? Where do we stand at Mount Rushmore so as to frame all four American presidents on the same scale?
