Big City Double Exposure Photographs

Financial District, New York

Driving through a big city, there are so many things to look at yet our brains have a hard time retaining memories of all the little details. Award-winning photographer Doug Keyes created these magnificent multiple exposure photographs to document travel along a route or within a specific area. His goal was to record what the eye doesn't see but the mind retains.

Says Keyes: “From the ubiquitous buildings of corporate chains to temporary car wash signs and monuments of long forgotten war heroes, each image is part of a larger Collective Memory project that attempts to answer the question: How do we know what we know?”
