David Lidbetter has been transforming objects by turning them over to their side least seen. The London-based still life photographer has an ongoing series exploring the undersides of everyday things like stamps, seed trays, handwritten notes and archery targets.
The results are disconcerting. It takes a while to make out the Queen’s head, the author of the scrawls has been pressing uncomfortably hard, the archery target looks flimsy and battered and the seed trays look like satellite shots of a spaghetti-draped planet. Simple idea, beautifully executed.
