The photo series titled Doppelganger by Cornelia Hediger, a photographer based in New York, New York, is surreal for a number of reasons. The two overriding factors, however, revolve around the fact that she appears more than once in each frame as a different character and that her surrounding space and body has been distorted ever so slightly. The latter is achieved through the use of grids that lets her manipulate the photos after shooting them.

Exploring the sense of a fractured self, Doppelganger by Cornelia Hediger further delves into this topic by involving various alter egos. She elaborates eloquently, "The idea of the Doppelgänger also allows me look the alter ego, the conscious mind vs the unconscious mind, inner conflicts, the duality between good and evil and split personalities"
