Victor Enrich’s surreal urban landscapes


Article by Lucia Ruggiero

Victor-Enrich_21.jpgVictor Enrich has recently combined the real photography of architecture with graphic design to produce some of the most surreal and original pieces of digital art and photography to date. Focusing on urban landscapes he takes a particular structure, such as a whole building or staircase, and uses computer design software to alter the shape and angle at which the structure sits. The effect is a dreamlike photograph that disrupts our perception of physical space and gravity. Strong, solid buildings become flexible and curved, while staircases lead out into thin air. There may be little that appears new and experimental in turning buildings upside down, but what makes the photography so remarkable is Enrich’s use of real architecture photography in order to make the finished product appear as visually seamless and real as possible. These are not simply digitally created images, but an inventive use of digital graphics to alter real-life urban scenes.
