Life, death, timeless space, patterns, stories, collective memory

I read about this exhibit a few years ago but somehow missed it while it was up. It stuck with me though. At a flea market, Bruno Rosier found a series of photographs of a man in front of famous tourist locations. Rosier recreated every aspect of the photos, except he substituted himself in the anonymous man's place.

New York Magazine said it better than I can: "Look, Rosier seems to be saying, He was here, I was here. And you, too, have been here before."
