Markus Studtmann Channels Hitchcock's 'Vertigo' in His Work

It's difficult to say what defines good or bad photography, but I think it's safe to say that images like these ones by Markus Studtmann - that manage to capture your attention for what seems like an eternity, are pretty close to amazing.

The photographer describes his artistic process as "composing and reassembling images in order to reduce them to their essential geometry and amplifying their perceived mood," according to the creators project website. His photos draw inspiration from Hitchcock's classic film 'Vertigo,' leaving viewers disoriented yet curious for the unknown. Whether an image looks up into a cloud of buildings or down into a mysterious sea of lit up windows, Markus Studtmann has captured the desire for discovery in his photography.
