I stumbled across this blog post about Switzerland-based Corinne Vionnet who has taken several hundred photos of the world's top tourist destinations and layered them. The results are really interesting - check them out here: Hundreds of Tourist Photos Weaved into One I'm reminded of the other discussion going on about why we take pictures, and I would argue it has to do with memory - of remembering or being remembered. For the sake of remembering, I often seek out the "classic" framing of a given place so I can have the satisfaction of saying that "I too went there and took that picture". In away, it's nice to know that I'm participating in some kind of tradition when taking a picture that thousands have done before. It says something about a particular vantage point that thousands have sought out and shot from in the past - that spot may best serve the subject in some way. Democratic photography - hah! On the other hand, this also serves as a reminder that to be memorable , my images must have character, personality, and uniqueness. Otherwise, they're just 1 in a sea of thousands, and easily replaceable in a project such as Vionnet's. For an image to be remembered by others, it should stand out and treat the subject somehow uniquely. I enjoy both approaches. What about you?
