Playing with disorienting perspective, the 'From Below' Series by Michael Rohde is a show of photographic genius.

The German artist made this series with the intention to have his viewer struggle with orientation. By creating a view of rooms from below, he creates a photographic arrangement that is one of a kind. It is meant to challenge conventional notions of perspective by the destabilization of these interior spaces. The images are highly visually stimulating in their ability to turn points of view upside down.

Rohde's work, with its ability to disorient, forces the viewer to challenge the notion of their own perceptions and limitations. Appearing as if the floor were made of glass, these Utopic images push boundaries with their playful challenge of everyday objects. Rohde is aesthetically changing our interpretation of everyday spaces.
