Édouard Levé - Amérique

In 2002, the French photographer Édouard Levé travelled to the United States to collect material for his photography series Amérique. Limiting his project in chance-procedural fashion, Levé gathered images from American towns and cities that shared their names with other places around the world. For instance, Amérique features photographs taken in Paris, Texas, and Berlin, Pennsylvania, and so on. […] Amérique was Édouard Levé’s final collection of photos. In 2007, the year after its publication, he took his own life at 42. (via Ryan Meehan)
