"Silent World," a photography project by Parisian artists Lucie & Simon, takes the most crowded parts of New York City, Paris, and
Beijing, and alters them in a basic (but technically incredible
difficult) way. We recognize Times Square, Columbus Circle, and more
landmarks from our own hometown, but only barely--those usually
people-clogged landmarks are now empty, totally bereft of the swarms of
tourists and locals alike that give those areas their personality.
