Beautiful Rainy Day Reflections Captured on City Streets

When it starts to rain, you will most likely find French photographer Yodamanu outside, documenting the reflections that bounce off of wet sidewalks and glisten on window panes. Based in Strasbourg, Yodamanu concentrates his attention on the shadowy figures of people walking in the rain and their casual interactions with many urban elements of the city. By turning his images upside-down, the actual person becomes just a touch of solid reality within an otherwise abstract sea of shapes, forms, and colors that are reminiscent of Impressionist paintings.

His series, Reflections, is a fascinating collection of visually exciting textures and vibrant colors. The painterly compositions are a blur of shadowy human figures surrounded by suggestive, but not completely concrete, layers of reality. At first glance, the image appears quite evident to comprehend, however, upon further inspection, viewers discover that there is much more than first meets the eye. It takes a few playful moments to understand the details within the beautifully organized chaos.
