Doubles With Van Gogh


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!!
