British photographer Alexander Kent challengers audiences to think outside the box in his illusory collection of everyday objects. Masterfully manipulating color and depth, Alexander Kent manages to create a seemingly obvious but subtly suspicious collection whereby onlookers will have no choice but to double back and question whether what they initially saw was in fact the truth.

A more important question this series poses is whether there is an absolute truth in art; whether one's perspective is truly the reality that meets the eye. The British artist's skillful marriage of everyday objects not only reflects confident technique through the simplistic, yet strategic placements, but also forces viewers to question their own sense of truth and perception.
