Maybe its like a great idea in a high school photography class. But still it is interesting. Though I can see it becoming tedious after a while.

Slavin’s “Alternate Perspectives” is a series of photographs of a single location or landmark pieced together to create a 360 degree perspective in a flat image. The results are whimsical, and occasionally eerie, scenes that reflect the portion and scale of Slavin’s surroundings when he took the photo.

“I want to make sure my intentions for this project is to go out and explore the world and take a look at the monuments and reimagine them in a different way,” he said. “I want to take a series of photos based on things we’ve already seen and look at them with a new perspective.”

Though skylines and trees are unnaturally curved in the scenes, he uses a photo editing technique called stitching that creates a seamless, single image out of multiple. So, though his photos are a spherical view of the world, they look like an accurate one.

“I love surrealist art that has a grounding in reality,” he said. “It’s not just surreal for the sake of surreal. I try to keep reality in the surreal photos that I take.”

I love this woman’s work. Many of her shots look like staged collages. Instead of cut and paste she uses props and costumes. You can go through her work and marvel at its quantity and quality. Annie Leibovitz. Her name looks like a photograph.

He mixes painting with photography. I think. And then creates a digital copy. I think. The images are startling. Filled with metaphors. Or what is supposed to stand for metaphor. Perhaps they are just random.
