The Imagined Nineteenth-Century Portraiture of Travis A. Louie

A day before the opening of the 1939 World's Fair, Gill pulled himself out of the great Flushing Bay and headed toward Main Street. After eating a hotdog and a strawberry ice cream soda, he went back into the Bay.

He reappeared many decades later in the upper deck of Shea stadium during the 1986 World Series between the New York Mets and the Boston Red Sox. He was enjoying a hotdog and a beer.
New photographs of paintings made to look like old photographs: the unusal work of Travis A. Louie is available for viewing on Flickr (via growabrain).
