Even though the art of photography allows people to play with reality, many photographers still stick to what they know; the photo series titled 'Flat Landscapes' by Lauren Hillebrandt shows that simple tweaks are all that is needed to have a little fun with the art form. Her still-life shots rely on the most basic ideas of optical illusion to create images that bend reality ever so slightly.

Flat Landscapes by Lauren Hillebrandt forces ordinary objects such as bananas and branches to become sculptures, thus losing their original purpose. According to the Netherlands-based artist, her craving for "absurdism" makes her reject society's belief that "perfection goes hand in hand with photography" by ignoring this "pretension and remain[ing] at a point where [she] can create everything in front of the camera."
