Eleven New York City landmarks have been misplaced, their current location unknown. Photographs of unclear origin appear to show them scattered across the globe – on sand dunes, mud flats, “lunar” plains, and rocky beaches. Nobody knows exactly what happened or why. Did they act of their own volition? Was there foul-play involved? What does it all mean? Stories trickle in from the future, from architects, online reviewers, and the buildings themselves, but these only add to the confusion. Your curiosity and help is much appreciated.

You can find Anton Repponen on the web:

For his digital collage series, Misplaced, photographer Anton Repponen plucked 11 of New York’s famous landmarks from their urban environment and digitally inserted them into desolate landscapes.
