The geometrical illusion of Georges Rousse is large-scale and impressive. It takes the architectural, color and line elements in order to create scenes that are incredibly deceptive. Of course, only if viewed from a certain vantage point. That's where the photography comes into play. If actually in the same space as the geometrical illusions, perception is re-established as shown in these telling images.

Although the geometrical illusions appear to distort the settings, there is more going on than this. As written on Psfk, "In his photographs, Georges Rousse compels us to read architecture as static, images as immobile, then gradually transforms our perception of Space and Reality." Complex and intriguing, the geometrical illusions range in colors, shapes and sizes as well as venues. No two are exactly alike and each are entertaining.
