Artist Atelier Olschinsky takes an unorthodox viewpoint of the crowded urban streets of China in his series entitled China in a Mirror.

The artist collaborated with Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss to present a mirrored viewpoint of the urban mecca. By manipulating the photos and making them perfectly symmetrical to one another creates a very interesting introspection into the usually bustling and chaotic setting. Rather then showcasing the usually overwhelming scene, the organization that the mirror effect creates makes for a much more aesthetically calming and pleasing picture to look at. It also allows the viewer to focus on the intricate details of the urban streets and buildings rather then being submerged with the image as a whole.

China in a Mirror is a new way to demonstrate order in one of the most disorderly and chaotic settings. Stats for Symmetrical Bustling Urban Portraits Trending: Older & Chilly
