Samsies is an interesting project curated by Alex Carman, Dave Geeting, Sophie Curtis. The selection process seems possibly painstaking but the results are nevertheless a curious study on very similar images taken by complete strangers. I know I have seen many a photo that reminded me of something else, and I have probably unconsciously or accidentally taken a picture that very much mimicked or duplicated a scene snapped by someone else. Whether these are examples of "the sincerest form of flattery" or variations on popular themes I like what they're doing here.
