From Down Under

In Design, Photography, Surreal on August 28, 2012 at 10:01 am

I am left with a very uncomfortable disorientating feeling after viewing Michael H.Rohde’s new photographic series From Below. A new angle is explored in these images where the viewer grapples to make head or tails of the picture. Soon, they realise they are viewing the room from below. To create this strange effect, Rohde photographed the items individually and then digitally composed them together on a single canvas.

There’s a queer unsettled feeling in the pit of my stomach but I think it’s a good sign of good work moving it’s viewers. It may be disorientating but it becomes a strange puzzle my brain tries to figure out. The way these photographs challenge perspective is fascinating.
