Doubles with famous images gives a universality to the photos while putting something that's been seen a million times in a new light.
Paris is such a beautiful city that it’s hard not to take a ton of photos whenever I go there, but after a while, the 15th picture of the Eiffel Tower starts to look a bit redundant and cliche. So last winter, I decided to try a doubles experiment. The first layer of the roll was taken for the most part in the Musee d’Orsay – famous painting by Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec, Cezanne, etc. I also went out and took some of easily recognizable Paris scenes – the Seine, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre, etc. Then I rewound the roll and went on a walk, shooting whatever I saw. I loved the results—Cezanne’s fruit in a metro car and the Eiffel Tower in a pastry shop. If you don’t have a doubles partner, just go to a museum or famous site in any city and do a doubles roll with the architect or painter of your choice!!

There’s something about New York that attracts people, something that makes both visitors from the most bucolic places and tourists from the most cosmopolitan of cities fall in love. Countless movies and television programs have been filmed in New York, and so many songs have been written in reminiscence of the place. It’s not just the Empire State Building, Times Square or Broadway; there’s something special about the streets and the people who walk on them that make spectators stop, look, and listen.
