About the project

Overview for Louis 200

"Building on my work where I use multiple satellite images to show the passage of time, I've overlaid a high-resolution scan of a map of Paris from the 1820’s with a recent satellite composition of the city. Stopping at various famous landmarks, including Louis’s first store, you fly above and through the city to examine just how much changed since his birth. Above all, the story speaks to the legacy and longevity of the Louis Vuitton brand, which has evolved within and alongside a simultaneously, ever-changing Paris for all of these years."
