Entitled "The Mirror Man Suitcase", this image series by Rui Calcada Bastos looks at urban architecture through a mirrored lens. The Portuguese photographer's unique portraits find beauty in gritty urban environments and feature a reflective luggage prop that reveals striking views of buildings, streetlights and city sidewalks.

This fragmented image series is inspired by the Surrealism art movement and looks to pioneers like Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte for inspiration. Its photographs zone in on the unique parts that make up any big city.

Rui Calcada Bastos' black-and-white image series is visually striking and is almost dreamlike in its aesthetic. The surreal portrait set is set to appeal to modern art lovers and individuals with an appreciation for urban architecture and imagery.
