Background Information about Daniella Zalcman


Digital bohemianism: New York + London
Daniella Zalcman’s photographs capture the spirit of an entire generation. The artist overlays images of New York and London, her two homes. The city streets of the British capital dissolve into the New York skyline; the sparkling lights of Times Square merge into those of Trafalgar Square, the beating heart of the UK’s iconic city.
The works are symbolic of Zalcman’s love for both cities and her personal understanding of home. She has named the series “New York + London”, using the typography to precisely express that her photographs are modern love letters. The artist herself is the epitome of the digital Bohemian, not only in her subject matter, but also in her means of production: Zalcman captures the images with her iPhone and even edits them using smartphone apps. The complex double exposures appear all the more artistic when an anthology of the “home” emerges from concrete urban scenes.
As the artist herself explains, “’New York + London’ explores place, memory, and identity through architecture and nostalgia. My hope is that in the noise and silence, everyone will find something that feels like home.”
Daniella Zalcman reveals new perspectives on two of the most photographed metropolises in the world. Her works have already been displayed in countless New York galleries and can also be found in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.
