Daniella Zalcman's images of the two cities overlapping creates a dreamy alternative world.

New Yorkers say that theirs is the greatest city in the world, while Londoners argue that their hometown is the center of it all, a hop away from Europe and a skip away from anywhere else. Photojournalist Daniella Zalcman, who has lived in both, wanted to bring the two together in a series of photographs to create one great imaginary metropolis, all with her iPhone 4S.

The project, New York + London, was shot entirely with Zalcman’s iPhone and edited with smartphone apps to create an overlay of the urban landscapes. As an award-winning photojournalist, with work published in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, she is used to lugging around heavy equipment but preferred the spontaneity and informality that the phone provided.

Through the photographs you can see both the similarities and the contrasts of the two global cities, with the skyscrapers and fire escapes of New York blending and melding in with the Regency architecture of old London. Zalcman, who recently raised enough funds to publish a book of the series, said of the project:

When I moved from New York City to London late last year, I decided to create a series of double exposures. These images are a love letter to two beautiful cities — a personal map of their streets and their skylines… Each pair of images is selected based on negative space, color, and contrast. Together, they create imaginary landscapes, like the ones we form when we think of home.

Check some of double exposures in the gallery below and more on Zalman’s flickr.
