In an almost painterly fashion, Jacrot gives us some angles of New York City appearing almost as an old Hollywood set, and it was all elaborately staged. Surreal.

    I thought these pictures where very interesting. As soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to share them with you guys. They remind of the movies, when they show depictions of old London sometimes. They invoke an old contemporary feel to me, even though they aren’t of old things. Idk… What do you guys think?


  2. The lady looks good in black. Great images. Not so much as a “eerie” feeling for me but harkening back to another time before everything was electrified. There is a quiet innocence in these images. Love them.
