World Landmarks Levitate on Boulders Over the Ocean


Levitation is a collection of manipulated photos by Italian photographer Giuseppe Lo Schiavo that takes a surreal look at world landmarks as their own islands hovering over open waters. The imaginative series presents an unusual concept that uses architectural structures and natural landscapes found in real life to produce images that transcend reality.

Lo Schiavo says, “I use photography to materialize my visions and not for interpreting the reality… I have seen an entire city in a window, a mountain in a pebble; I even saw colors in a black & white picture.” His innovative sense of the surreal allows Levitation to visualize a distant future that exceeds the physical limitations of the present.
