this sh*t just blew my mind


what if i told you that the landscapes you see in these photographs are not landscapes at all, but careful collections of cottonballs, fun fur, paprika and other such bits n bobs? does that not blow your freakin mind?! these incredible worlds are created by the extraordinarily talented artist Mathew Albanese, using forced perspective techniques to fool the eye. in the photo above, for example the fields are made of faux fur, the clouds are cotton, and the mountains are sifted tile grout (!). you can see more of his fascinating work, and how it comes to fruition, here.

above image: paprika, cinnamon, thyme, chili powder, charcoal
