London and New York City; two cities so fundamentally different and yet so amazingly similar. So what happens when two of the most photographed cities in the world come together as one? Daniella Zalcman’s new photographic project New York + London shows us the exact result.
Daniella Zalcman is an award-winning photojournalist with a background in architecture. After establishing a name for herself in New York City, where her work appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, the New York Daily News, Sports Illustrated and Vanity Fair, she felt that it was time for her to relocate to London. And her desire to bring a piece of her beloved New York into her new London life, was the driving force that sparked the idea for her next project.
‘New York + London: A Collection of Double Exposures’ is an Instagram double exposure series of 100 images that brilliantly merge well-known places in New York City and London into one new unified cityscape quite like no other. After collecting 30 days of iPhone images during her last month in New York City, Zalcman then delicately edited them using smartphone apps with images she took upon arriving in London. ”They’re both places I adore, and, in my opinion, they’re two of the most photogenic cities in the world”, she fervently explains.
