The Nicolas Dhervillers 'Tourist #1' photo series is an interesting concept. It centers on original photographs taken by Dhervillers with the addition of select Google tourist images that have been cut and cropped so that only the tourist remains.

By placing this tourist with his photograph, the Nicolas Dhervillers 'Tourist #1' series depicts new 'non-places,' as the artist puts it. By creating these new settings, he creates a whole new set of imagery that has not been done before. Stats for Remixed Google Images Trending: Older & Chilly
