The line between fiction and reality just got even thinner – French photographer, Fred Lebain, took a trip to New York City and took pictures before returning to France to posterize the prints. He then returned to create installations where the photograph was originally taken, camouflaging the picture in the scene.

The collection is called ‘A Spring in New York’. If you look closely, you can sometimes see feet or an easel. In some the pictures, Lebain purposely let the poster fold or crease to draw attention to the juxtaposition. (See Christopher Moloney‘s work for more examples.)

View the gallery below to see pictures of the city, including a beautiful shot of the Brooklyn Bridge.
