A New Perspective with Gustav Willeit

Dizzying Double Vision
Posted by Gestalten—08/2017

When we think of mirror images, we think of things in perfect symmetry: lined up to the tee. Photographer Gustav Willeit had a different idea for his Perspe series. Taking its name from Perspektive, the German word for perspective, each image is an eerie balancing act that denies its own manipulation. The artist places an interruption in each composite—a group of people on a walk, or a single bird—that affects a sense of normality in Willeit’s otherwise-disorienting landscapes. Looking for more? Take a glimpse at the rest of the series below, or check out our book PhotoViz, which highlights how photography can be used for data visualization.
