These images of Brighton Beach are strikingly similar, each with the pole and the sea aligned. What makes photographers approach a subject in a comparable way? Did they know the other images and what do they think when seeing all three next to each other on Streetrepeat? Read what the three photographers have to say about it.
This is quite a fascinating theme to me. Not only did many photographers capture the same cat painting in the Moroccan village of Essaouira, they all captured it together with a seagull. It shows how much we are trained to create the same visual connections with different eyes, at different times. I’ve asked the photographers to share the story behind their image.
