Real-life wall paintings that only reveal themselves at certain angles. Amazing!

French architectural photographer Georges Rousse is a wizard at the art of perspective. Finding inspiration in forgotten spaces, he creates one-of-a-kind installations in abandoned and derelict buildings, then photographs them. His aesthetics are straightforward: painting fundamental shapes like circles and squares in bold colors that only reveal themselves when seen at a certain angle. From this unique standing point, the pieces all line up to form a unified shape, bursting into life against the monotonous backdrop of their deserted surroundings.

The Paris-based architectural photographer’s works question the definition of art by presenting three kinds of space: the real space, an imaginary utopian space which the artist invents and then carefully builds, and a new space only visible in a photograph. They create a playful contrast between reality and perception, the concrete and the imaginary.
