The Incredible Photos by Georges Rousse Manipulate Reality

The creative work that Georges Rousse does inside of deserted buildings is absolutely stunning. Rousse transforms the inside of these buildings into colorful geometric optical illusions. He does it by repainting portions of them to create the surreal scenes that he captures.

Aside from being completely blown away by the captivating nature of the images, the first thought that springs to mind is that the photos must be digitally altered. To find out that Georges Rousse manually paints the geometric patterns within the buildings makes the art all the more stunning.

Rousse explains, “The final photographic image perturbs our visual habits and convictions by presenting three kinds of space: the real space… an imaginary utopian space… and a new space that is visible from only one spot when he clicks the camera shutter, and exists only in the photo.” This type of abstract, creative thinking is exactly why these photographs are true masterpieces.
