New York and London are extremely photogenic cities that are not only the center of many commercial shoots, but also in various films. What if you could fuse the two though? Daniella Zalcman has done just that in a series of double exposure images that were shared on her Instagram and Flickr. She got the idea when she prepared to move from the Big Apple to the home of Big Ben. She took to Kickstarter to accumulate funding for the production of a limited run book called NY + London and received her goal for the creation.
Take a look at some of the selections after the jump and read out quick interview with her.

Phoblographer: How did you create these images?
Daniella: I used a pretty simple editing process — I made the composites using the Image Blender app (in almost all cases using a direct 1:1 correspondence, i.e. no cropping/rearranging/tweaking/masking), and popped it into Instagram.
Phoblographer: What inspired you to do this?
Daniella: I was inspired by my move from New York City to London last year. I think it’s natural (and unavoidable) to constantly compare your old home and your new home when you move somewhere new (“London cab drivers actually know how to get around!” “The Tube closes at 12:30am?!”), and this is my way of visually capturing that instinct. These images are very much about architecture and urban infrastructure and I love comparing the two cities in that particular respect. London feels like such an old city rooted in visual tradition, where New York always feels like it’s trying to be as shiny and new as possible.
