Pyramide du Louvre (or Farewell Paris, a Pyramid Scheme)

Al Wildey's avatar Al Wildey

This image is comprised of superimposed digital photographs of a journey circling around I.M. Pei's Great Pyramid located at the Palais du Louvre courtyard. Opacity adjustments on each photographic layer results in a composite image with faint traces of each photograph, creating an implied sense of the cumulative journey over time and through space. This image was created in response to two concerns--the irresponsible withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord and the scourge of Multi-Level Marketing schemes. Look closely!
