Tianducheng: A Fake Paris in China

These two photographs of the Eiffel Tower look very similar, but they aren’t the same, which you can probably tell from their different surroundings. One of the Eiffel Towers is the original standing in Paris. The other is a replica located in Tianducheng, in the suburbs of Hangzhou in China.

Replicas of famous monuments are common around the world, but there is something pervasive and obsessive about Tianducheng. Spread over 31 square kilometers, this luxurious housing estate, opened in 2007, was modeled after France’s famous “City of Lights” with Parisian-style buildings, fountains, landscaping and even its own Eiffel Tower. The replica Eiffel Tower here is over one hundred meters tall, or one-third the size of the original.

Photos of Paris at night time shot from an iPhone by graphic artist and photographer Loic Le Quere. Over the previous few years, the digicam at the iPhone has gotten higher and that is an instance of it. The sequence captures the town from any other attitude with its empty alleyways, retail outlets, and museums but additionally some attention-grabbing pictures from throughout the metro machine that appears like a double publicity—appearing folks asleep or deep in idea.
