China’s Bustling Streets Photoshopped Into Perfect Symmetry

Atelier Olschinsky, a creative studio in Vienna featuring the collaborative work of Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss, presents a unique look at the bustling urban streets of China in its series titled China in a Mirror. The collection of digitally manipulated photos showcase a symmetrical view of populated cityscapes. The illusion of perfect symmetry adds an uncommon yet interesting perspective of an urban environment crammed full of architecture and brimming with people.

We're used to seeing big metropolises and even poor, overcrowded villages exactly as they are: chaotic. However, this series exhibits a rare peek at visual organization on a massive scale. The streets, whether they're congested with mobs of people or the overwhelming buildings and awnings that line them, are given a sense of order with the expert application of a mirrored effect.
