The Redundant Photography of Fred Lebain

Photo: 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.

I think that his these would have been much more interesting had more time passed between the photographs. Such as the one above, the graffit could have been cleaned up, or more added or that door missing.....it could have shown the changes that the city undertook over time. And it would make it less redunant! LOL
