This Aakash Nihalani photography series plays with the perception of its viewers. The artist's latest project captures human subjects who are superimposed with a number of geometric and floating shapes. These shapes are displayed in a palette of highlighter hues and appear to be moving through one's body. They are shown in perspective and appear three-dimensional.

Conceptual and optical illusion images are brought to life in this Aakash Nihalani photography set. The series brings together multiple subjects through geometric shapes that appear to pierce through their bodies and clothing. This cleverly photo-shopped series is a fun departure from the artist's better known works that include geometric wall graphics, created using a medium of colored tape strips.
