  • An obscure town in China has built itself in the image of Paris. See if you can spot the difference
Full Description
According to Oscar Wilde, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery", and so the French capital ought to be flattered indeed. The small city of Tianducheng in China (built just 13 years ago) boasts an Eiffel Tower replica and 31km2 of convincing Parisien architecture, landscaping and fountains. Photographer Francois Prost became fascinated with the 'duplicature' movement in China and traveled there to capture the phenomenon. His resulting images, presented side by side with the French originals, are playful if a little unsettling. Is this flattery... or is it just weird?
