With roots in the @echosight project spearheaded by Danny Ghitis and Daniella Zalcman, photographs made in different locations by Ed Kashi and Laura El-Tantawy were fused together using an app called Image Blender. This Instagram-based collaboration created unusual combinations to give new meaning to the images.

While on recent assignments throughout the world, Ed Kashi’s collection of iPhone images from many locations has started to grow – from Burma to Nicaragua, Nigeria, Paris, Aspen, and back home to the New York/New Jersey area. Together these images capture the essence of daily ruminations, observations and ultimately sketches of a photographer’s life and eye at work. Seen in a 4-image grid format, they represent a personal visual diary from daily sights both on and off assignment. Whether resembling each other in content, color or composition, these images speak of the connectedness of humanity on the streets of the world.

Hurricane Sandy: One Year Later
In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy bore down on the east coast of the United States. On assignment for TIME magazine to shoot iPhone images for upload in real time to the TIME magazine Instagram feed, Ed Kashi covered the incoming storm and some of the devastating aftermath in New Jersey. One year later, Ed Kashi took over the NBC Instagram feed while retracing the steps he took to document the storm in 2012. These diptychs are composed of images taken in the same locations at the same time of day, one year removed.
