We’ve been transfixed by this incredible series of double exposures by Beijing-based photographer Xiao Yang.
In Love Letters, Xiao creates dreamy portraits against the backdrop of abandoned buildings and derelict structures.

Frederick Sommer (1905-1999) “Situating his photography within a wider artistic practice that included poetry, drawing and painting, Sommer pushed the boundaries of photography’s subject matter. He moved from finding things to photograph to creating things for the camera, a method that has great resonance with contemporary photography.”
Clarence John Laughlin (1905 -1985). Self taught in photography his work was influenced among others by Eugene Atget who tried to capture a decaying urban landscape. Laughlin’s home city of New Orleans was the location for many of his pictures. Seen as the first surrealist photographer in the United States he “constructed elaborate stages and employed models, costumes, and props to create haunting abstractions”. His book, “Ghosts Along the Mississippi,” was published in 1948.
