Christian Åslund Changes Our Views on City Life with His Photos

 - Feb 7, 2013

Christian Åslund has changed the audience's perceptions of everyday life with these gravity-defying images in urban environments.

By switching the perspective with camera trickery, he is able to portray skewed views. His bird's-eye view captures, coupled with clever placement of his subjects, fool the mind into thinking it is looking on a level plane. Each image appears to have the subject struggling to find balance and equilibrium. In actuality, the subject is lying down as part of a brilliant act.

Perhaps these images show that by simply changing one's perspective life can be incredibly difficult or a lot more enjoyable. It's up to the individual whether they are willing to make that change. Either way, as a result of these gravity defying images, one may never look at urban areas the same again.
