Inception was a cool film, wasn’t it? If, like me, you’ve missed having your mind blown by flipping horizons and helter skelter streets since it was released a couple of years ago then here’s Ben Thomas to remind you how cool and simple such effects can be. Ben uses tilt shift photography techniques to capture city skylines looking strangely like miniatures, and then mirrors them back onto themselves with editing software to create a weird vortex-like landscape. Cool, isn’t it? Now let’s all take a moment to imagine how strange it would be if looking up into the sky you saw the head of somebody else looking down at your from miles away. Weird.
