Misplaced New York, a Photographic Series Which Places Iconic New York Buildings in Barren Landscapes

Misplaced New York is an interesting photo series from photographer and designer Anton Repponen that takes eleven iconic New York City buildings such as the Guggenheim and the United Nations Building, and isolates them in stark, desolate backgrounds.

Eleven New York City landmarks have been misplaced, their current location unknown. Photographs of unclear origin appear to show them scattered across the globe – on sand dunes, mud flats, “lunar” plains, and rocky beaches. Nobody knows exactly what happened or why. Did they act of their own volition? Was there foulplay involved? What does it all mean? Stories trickle in from the future, from architects, online reviewers, and the buildings themselves, but these only add to the confusion. Your curiosity and help is much appreciated.

Check out the project page for a closer look at Misplaced New York.
