The Collective Snapshot series by Spanish photographer Pep Ventosa features iconic architectural wonders and landmarks that have been brilliantly blurred. In this series, multiple snapshots are taken of notable landmarks and then combined together to form one cohesive photographic masterpiece. With a quick glance, one might assume that these works of art are sketches or water-color paintings, but they are actually layered photos. These photographs are abstracted and blended together to form a fresh and contemporary interpretation of tourist locations many of us have already seen.
The results of this technique are hazy depictions of world famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, the Louvre and the Sydney Opera House. These pictures are wonderfully layered and sketched, but still maintain intricate architectural and accurate color detailing. Ventrosa allows viewers to revisit recognizable world attractions, albeit with a new perspective bound to produce new experiences.
