Inverted Reflections of Beautiful Landscapes on Glassware

Moscow-based Russian photographer Mariya-Luiza captures the inverted reflections of beautiful landscapes in a series roughly translated as Reflections and Magic Balls. Utilizing the natural visual properties of wine glasses, tumblers, and other rounded glassware, the photographer captures a whimsical world of upside down reflections that take entire landscapes and minimize them into the small, translucent containers.

The images in the photographer's collection present the natural phenomenon that occurs when the glasses and pitchers are filled with water. They are all transformed into a visually illusive, handheld scene that mimics an upturned version of the surrounding environment. They're almost like individual snow globes, equipped with their very own architecture.
