What seems like a digitally superimposed graphic over a photograph is actually an optical illusion. Artist and photographer Fanette Guilloud is able to create these real life illusions by using a technique called anamorphic projection, similar to the work of Felice Varini, where an image only comes together as one when viewed from a specific angle. She meticulously paints over surfaces, of varying depths, in abandoned buildings in locations throughout Toulouse, Bordeaux and in the French Alps near Lyon. They’re mind blowing and I absolutely love them.
