'What You See Is Not What You Get.' That is perhaps the most aptly titled photo series I have come across yet. Part of an architecturally focused series, these featured photos have been manipulated to create surreal images that make you question what is real and what is not.

Photographed by Oliver Ratsi, the 'What You See Is Not What You Get' photo series essentially fragments urban landscapes so as to reshape the evolution of it as well as to "encourage the audience to interact with the artwork according to a visual reconstruction mental exercise," as put by Ratsi. That said, the overall pixelated outcome is pretty impressive, even without looking deeper into the meaning of each photo. Check out the featured gallery to see some of these amazingly surreal images. Stats for Fragmented Architecture Photos Trending: Older & Average
