Hundreds of Tourist Photos Woven Into One

Ready to embark on an adventure? Let's take a trip around the world. Got no cash? Strapped for time? No worries. On this vacation, you won't be leaving your desk...

Switzerland-based Corinne Vionnet is our guide to the world's most famous landmarks, monuments millions have visited before.

Her art is created not by acrylic, oil, or watercolor, each piece is made by combining hundreds of tourist photos into one. After conducting an online keyword search and sifting through photo sharing sites, this artist carefully layered 200 to 300 photos on top of one another until she got her desired result.

Look closely and you'll see dim shadows, vague silhouettes that aimlessly wander around. More than anything, these haunting figures make us think about our own fading memories and the inevitable passage of time.

"Why do we always take the same picture, if not to interact with what already exists?," Vionnet asks. "The photograph proves our presence. And to be true, the picture will be perfectly consistent with the pictures in our collective memory."
