Photographs by AleXander Hirka
“When you first look at them, you think, hey this picture is just upside down. But all it takes is a second to kind of unfocus and a new image emerges, another (right side up) building made of light and air and clouds and sunshine, gleaming against a hard dark background.” — Tammy Remington
It began when I found myself struck by the way the edges of buildings against the sky form their own skyline.
I started taking photos with that in mind and flipping them upside down. What amazed me from the start was how this completely unique and unexpected perspective emerged. A new world appears each time I flip one of these images.
Here are a dozen alternative worlds captured over the past two years.
And an eye-mesmerizing video at the end.
