Hundreds of tourist snapshots layered as one

For her intriguing series “Photo Opportunities,” artist Corinne Vionnet culled hundreds of photos from the Internet of tourist snapshots of famous landmarks from around the world and layered them to produce composite pictures of each popular sightseeing location. Although the artist’s curatorial hand influenced the final result of each image, there is still a remarkable uniformity in the point-of-view perspective and focus of camera wielding tourists: this is evident in the sharp focus of Mao’s portrait in Tiananmen Square.
