C'mon Tourists, Mix It Up a Little

Artist Corinne Vionnet combes through photo sharing sites, pulls out hundreds of photos that tourists have taken of the same thing (for instance, 300 pictures of the Taj Mahal taken by 300 different people) and superimposes them to form one ghostly, layered image.

It kinda makes you think of the passage of time, the monuments standing for thousands of years as millions of people stream back and forth, snapping the shutter to capture a brief second, and then fading into the background of vast, annonymous humanity. Or it makes you think man, tourists all take the same pictures.
