Photographer John Clang visually explores the feeling of déjà vu by joining multiples images taken from the same spot, capturing the citizens of New York in an unrealised shared moment.
The work comes from Clang’s fascination with the passage of time. As he recently described, “There is a sense of intimate intricacy of how time moves, and how people, albeit in a different time, are actually closer to one another and traveling in the same shared space … These images explore my fascination that there are probably many time dimensions in this universe. We may have a ‘life’ that exists similarly on a different path, one minute before or after the one we’re living now. We merely just exist in this current dimension, and sometimes when time paths collide, we have déjà vu experience.”
