Darkened Cities ~ Cohen Erases Light Pollution

WebUrbanist spots Thierry Cohen's Darkened Cities where he subtracts man-made lighting...
"What would your city look like if it went completely dark? Words like majestic, awe-inspiring and magical come to mind -- not as descriptions for the cities themselves, but how some of their most iconic architecture would look as black silhouettes against the bright starry skies of remote places. [...] Cohen doesn’t just superimpose random images of the night sky behind each skyline – the imagery is actually what the sky would look like in each of those precise locations."
