If you thought impressionistic paintings were blurry, wait until you lay your eyes on Jessica Backhaus’ photos. Taking a truly inventive approach to capturing scenes, Backhaus photographs streets reflected in moving puddles of water. Initial viewings of her pieces may have you thinking they’re all garbled pictures of nonsensical colors, but you can actually decipher the unique landscapes in her work using your imagination. Not only are her resulting images visually engaging, but they’re cognitively so as well.

Jessica Backhaus herself is a well-traveled photographer who came from a long line of artists. She currently resides in Germany, though she spent a significant time in France and the United States honing her skills. The hard work certainly paid off as Backhaus shows are currently booked well into the year 2014.
