Clever NYC Street Photography Snapshots Captured by Coincidence

Double take time.

At first glance, Jonathan Higbee‘s art looks like straightforward street photography snaps of New Yorkers doing their thing. Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that Higbee’s work is a series of visual puns captured purely by coincidence. In fact, that’s the name of his series, Coincidences. Website Ignant reveals that Higbee spends hours waiting for the right moment, reflection, or pose to photograph, creating an image that was chronicled purely by chance. See what we mean – and do a double take — in our gallery.
