Swedish photographer Ulf Lundin did pretty much the same thing a few years ago. Well only on a few of the shots in that series, I guess.

This image is my favorite. I have a postcard of this image on my refrigerator for about two years now. I should just frame it.

Cool stuff. I'm a little behind - it took me a couple before I sort of got what was going on.

It's a really interesting series. If my description was a bit obtuse, these photographs are composed of several shots of the same scene. He's creating these street shots by layering a bunch of photographs together. One of the shots I particularly liked was the street scene with nothing but children in it. This dudes photoshop kung fu is strong.

I don't think I figured it out until I saw a bunch of women wearing skimpy sundresses when there's snow on the ground.

Another great Lundin piece that would line up with Funch's work well.
