For those in long-distance relationships, it’s essential to keep communication open and treasure anything that will bring them closer together when they’re miles apart. Now one pair of photographers have a novel and beautiful way of documenting their long-distance relationship.
Becca Siegel and Dan Gold are spending the year apart. Becca lives in New York City with international trips in between, while Dan is spending a year abroad, living and working in 12 different cities as part of the Remote Year project.

The couple decided to keep the spirit of collaborating going with their Half Half Travel project. The concept is simple; splice together their complimentary travel photos, despite being taken at opposite ends of the globe.
The result is a vivid, slightly heartbreaking portrayal of long-distance relationship where sometimes the distance feels small and sometimes like a world away.

It also serves as a more general and comforting reminder for travellers that the world, in all its differences, is not really too different after all.

The details in the composition of the photos are incredible, with the different scenes being lined up perfectly to compliment and contrast with each other.
And they have great taste in travel guides too!
