There are many ways in which the geographical outlines of cities and countries have been used to create pieces of art, however none come close to the dream-like nature of the 'Islands' by Reinhard Krug.

These limited-edition prints feature the cut-outs of each city and has them filled in with a realistic portrait of the landscapes and architecture that the city has to offer as well. The three cities that have been covered in this series are New York, Cape Town and Sydney -- three of the most beautiful cities on the planet. Each city is known for its liveliness and by separating them from their respective countries and depicting each one in the sky, Reinhard Krug hopes audiences will see that they've all got their own domestic worlds and lifestyles. The use of a cloudy, surreal background also helps show them off as heavenly abodes that must be visited.
