Empire State

Neat Empire State multiple exposure (I am still coming down from my NYC high). I had a difficult time finding the artist or anything about the piece, as is a common problem on tumblr these days. Regardless, it is an interesting use of layering and does a good job of distorting the original purpose of the building — to be the tallest sky scraper in NYC (can’t be the one tallest building if there are 10 of you).

I usually don’t go for this type of double exposure portraiture, but I very much appreciate the thought that went into creating these images. They aren’t just juxtaposed with random buildings, the artist used the buildings to create a new character outside of the portraits. From what I can tell he shoots them in-camera with a Mark iii — something I am currently exploring. Kudos, man.
