American photographer, Autumn de Wilde has designed a pair of transparent and reflective jewel toned structures for a photo-shoot in the dry Californian landscape.  Made of a combination of mirror and coloured plexiglass, images of the landscape are reflected on the structure, and  the landscape is simultaneously cast with rose, warm gold and aqua tinted sunlight. The reciprocal exchange of colour, light and refraction are truly exquisite.

“I designed the sculptures so that they would interact and transform with the landscape as the sun rose, passed over us and set.”

Psst… a little confession. This work was commissioned by Cadillac for their Escalade ad campaign. De Wilde was inspired by the reflections of the landscape on the vehicle. This makes me a little puzzled and disappointed, but hey, it’s still a stunning piece of work. Let’s enjoy the images where the car is conveniently out of frame, shall we?
