Upside Town by Simon Gardiner

Take a look at Simon Gardiner’s photo series “Upside Town“. Gardiner uses in his photo series the simple mirroring effect with a perspective twist, which gives the images a kaleidoscopic feel. He deconstructs and reconstructs the photographs for a new visual reality, which he calls deconstructivism photography.

Gardiner about the series:

“Initially Inspired by the movie Inception this set features photos that are a bit different, the dream is real! Most recently Architectual Deconstructivism has interested me in that it is a development of postmodern architecture that began in the late 1980s. It is characterized by ideas of fragmentation, an interest in manipulating ideas of a structure’s surface or skin, non-rectilinear shapes which serve to distort and dislocate some of the elements of architecture, such as structure and envelope. The finished visual appearance of buildings that exhibit the many deconstructivist “styles” is characterized by a stimulating unpredictability and a controlled chaos. In these pieces i deconstruct and reconstruct photographs for a new visual reality. This is Deconstructivism photography.”
