Laying on the floor and looking up at the ceiling is nothing in comparison to these incredibly composed shots by German photographer Michael Rohde Aden who create these extraordinary photographs from an almost impossible perspective. The work series ‘From Below’ with its utopian view of interior spaces challenges our perception, while showing rooms from below the floor, as if they would merely consist of glass. [source]
This creative series of photographs by photographer Nithin Rao Kumblekar is pretty interesting. He shot models from above as they sprawled out on the ground over intricate chalk drawings, using perspective to blend them into the scenes. The models are placed really well, with proper lighting, shadow and wind, each one has a sense of motion! It kindly remind me of the “Dreams of Flying” by Jan von Holleben. [source].
‘I’m Not There’ by Pol Ubeda Hervas is a series of images that displays a man looking at his shadow. The only thing is that the man has been removed from the pictures and all that is left is a pair of sneakers and a shadow. Hervas was inspired to create this series because he said:
“How can we accept that we are changing? How can we accept we hardly recognize ourselves in certain situations? I am changing at this very moment of my life. I do not react in the same ways I used to. I am surprised. Is that me? These pictures are the way I see myself now. My shadow is there but I erase myself because I don´t know who I am any longer. The shoes remain only to make sure there is something more than… a shadow.”
Erik Johansson is one of the most talented photo manipulators / surreal digital artists of our time. As a young artist from Sweden, Johansson creates funny and imaginative photos by digitally modifying pictures he’s taken himself. Both artist and photographer in one, Johannson makes us open up our mind and think about a world that’s not confined by rules but by only our imagination.
