From Up Above and Down Below: Mind-blowingly New Perspectives in Interior Photography

2012-08-20 4

We’re always on the lookout for that perfect angle that will set our photographs apart from the rest. But just when you think you’ve got all the bases covered, along comes two separate artists who will prove you wrong.

First up is Berlin-based photographer Menno Aden. Creating an original series of photographs entitled “Room Portraits”, Aden captured images of various living and public interiors by installing a camera on the ceiling, resulting into seemingly two-dimensional yet symmetrical compositions of the rooms.

On the other hand, another German artist by the name Michael Rohde, created a series called “From Below”, which may share the same idea as Aden’s work, but at the same time, does not. In this series, Rohde recreates the interior of the room as seen from below. Think of it as looking at the room directly above your head whilst having x-ray vision. A word of warning though, you might find yourself feeling a little bit nauseated and dizzy after staring at the photos for too long.

Talk about different perspectives right? What do you guys think? Have you ever tried taking photographs from a completely unexpected angle? Share your thoughts below!

All information for this article were taken from iGNANT and from Menno Aden’s and Michael Rohde’s websites respectively.

    Nice! It's like one of some techniques to capture photographs of 2D artworks. Thus, they won't have any uneven view.
