A game!: Inception or Not Inception?
Mad man constructs faux reality by assembling deceivingly realistic structures that are maze-like when observed too closely.
Surprisingly, not Inception! Jean Francois Rauzier’s Hyperphotos are photographic reconstructions of real places often created from between 600-3,400 individual photos.
A bit like Hockney, Jean photographs a single place for one to two hours. He uses a telephoto lens to collect close-up shots of his scene.
The compilation is where his vision or dream, if you will, takes over and the thousands of photos translate into Babylones, Voyages Extraordinaries, and Cités Idéales. We can take a gander at what most of these French titles mean!
Looking at a single image will have you lost in its architecture for hours! (Kind of hoping we’ll find a Leo or Juno if we stare long enough.)
p.s. We’ll be at Photokina in Cologne this week! If you’re going, too, and want to meet up, send us a message at email@example.com.
