Distorted Landscapes Create Surreal Perspectives of the World

Photographer Randy Scott Slavin creates spherical panoramas that spin the world in all directions. We loved his earlier work and now he is back with more incredibly distorted worlds, entitled Alternative Perspectives 2. Through digital manipulation, Slavin transforms an average landscape into a surreal experience. His expressive compositions feature upside-down buildings, half-circle bridges, water floating in the sky, and trees that bend and curve in unusual ways.

He digitally bends, twists, and distorts everything so that eventually, right-side up and upside-down are no longer obvious. By altering the viewer’s understanding of reality, the artist creates an intriguing new perspective of the world around us.

The Alternative Perspectives series evolved from a love of landscapes, and Slavin says, “After lots of experimentation with panoramic photography I finally asked the question, Whats the most panorama I can shoot? Thats when I got into 360 degree spherical panoramas. Spherical panoramas then landed me in the world of stereographic projection (the mapping of a spherical image onto a flat plane) and the rest is history.”

Any of the amazing images are available as signed 24"x24″ or 24"x36″ prints for just $100 on the artist’s website.
