Beautiful Double Exposures Combine NYC and London by Daniella Zalcman | via

Photographer Daniella Zalcman’s New York + London series presents what she calls “a love letter to two beautiful cities.” The photographer presents a collection of double exposure images, all captured on her iPhone, merging the urban and natural landscapes that define both New York City and London. She simultaneously exhibits their similarities and differences, creating a new landscape that reminds her of both places.

Having lived in New York for seven years, Zalcman had already decided that the bustling city was her home, but after a trip to London, a city she immediately fell in love with, the photographer realized that she suddenly had two homes. Zalcman explains, “The resulting images are part New York, part London, and collectively represent my vision of home.”

Walter Gropius’ Bauhaus House (Built 1925-26) and Living Room Interior

From the beginning, the house was conceived as both a purely private dwelling for Walter and Ilse Gropius and also as a public building that served in many tours and as a film prop for the propagation of new building ideas. The Gropius couple was childless and their life revolved entirely around the Bauhaus. Ise Gropius fulfilled the role as host, secretary and “promoter”. Gropius’ biographer, Isaacs, wrote about this: “Ise Gropius tried to relieve her husband as much as possible and even carried out his correspondence with Alma Mahler-Werfel.” In 1928 Walter Gropius left the Bauhaus and Hannes Meyer the Swiss architect who had been engaged as a teacher there in 1927 became the new Bauhaus director. Before he moved into the house of his predecessor, Hannes Meyer had lived as a tenant in the Schlemmer house. In 1930 the third Bauhaus director, the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, moved into the detached house and redecorated it. Compared to his predecessors Mies van der Rohe enjoyed what appeared to be almost an aristocratic life style. It is reported that he not only had a maid but also a real live butler. From 1932 when Lilly Reich was leader of the interior design department at the Bauhaus it is assumed she lived with him in the in the masters house.
