We’ve seen before the amazing aesthetic effects you can achieve by taking great photos of rooms from above (and by you we mainly mean Menno Aden) but German artist Michael Rohde has taken a lowlier approach with stunning results. His from-below photos of different rooms are fascinating, compelling and meticulously-contsructed (created as they are by stitching together images of the undersides of the constiuent objects).
There so mindbending that some even create a slightly nauseating effect, which seems apt given that they recreate the view of a capsized drunk. Oscar Wilde said that we are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at these stars, or in this case the undersides of wash basins and trampolines. Danke indeed Michael.
