Playful Anamorphic Illusions of Life-Size Picture Frames


Anamorphoses is a site-specific series by French street artists Ella & Pitr, who also go by Papier Peintres, that playfully transforms rundown spaces into colorful settings for people to pose in for a picture. The duo adds anamorphic illusions of picture frames throughout the space from interesting angles. Depending on one’s perspective, it can look like a person is walking inside a portrait.

The artists completed this project as part of a campaign for the National Dramatic Center of St Etienne, choosing locations that they refer to as “forgotten parts of the city.” Working with the people of Etienne who volunteered to pose for their pictures, the pair managed to accumulate a collection of whimsical portraits in the otherwise dead spaces.
