Series of photographs that combines images of New York and Paris


Carla de la Matta from New York City and Loïc Remy from Paris, have joined efforts in an ongoing collaboration that transcends borders and connects  “the city that doesn’t sleep” and “the city of light”. Together, they have created a series they titled “Phantasma”. Their unusual creative ideas and photographic visions gave birth to an original project that bridges two continents and defies photographic norms. “Phantasma” is a series of photographs that combines images of New York and Paris. Both cities share many similarities and are unique at the same time, but this is not about getting a result with speech photos or sense, it is more about forms and feelings. 

This series meets through the Atlantic Ocean, where Paris has always existed in her mind as New York has existed in his. A vision very close to a fantasy or a “fantasma”, which in Spanish means GHOST.
