Troubling Symmetry: Photo Manipulations by Gustav Willeit
In his latest series “Perspe” Italian artist and photographer Gustav Willeit digitally manipulates his captures to create intriguing compositions.
“The title of this series, Perspe, originated from a fragment of the German word ‘Perspektive’ (perspective): a programmatic statement alluding to the composition work, which is based on a simulation that fully exploits the opportunities offered by digital technology.
The artist traces an unnatural perspective, i.e. a perspective that is ‘ideated’, invented, that acts and creates ‘different’ places by mirroring the image, thus reaching perfect symmetry often disrupted by a discordant element.”Art Photography Posted on September 27, 2017
