It’s certainly an experience familiar to New Yorkers, who live in what serves as the setting for countless movies â€” that sense of suddenly feeling that your locale is familiar, without quite being able to place it. When in fact you’ve previously only experienced your current location within a movie. Christopher Moloney had the inspired idea to take photos of locales used in movies in New York and around the world. He then superimposed on them stills from the movies themselves, while right on location, as it were.
The result provides a surreal but not unpleasing effect, a sampling of which is shown below, with many more displayed on the FILMography site. The above is taken from the 2008 film Ghost Town.
