Georges Rousse is a French photographer who takes photos of abandoned spaces such as buildings, parking garages, streetscapes etc. Before taking a photo, Georges paints precise geometrical shapes which produce the illusion of a simple, flat design floating on the surface of the photo.

Extreme awesomeness!

By the way, I reckon that this post is a bit of a love child of two other post I’ve shared with you before – Haunting photography of abandoned buildings by Katherine Westerhout and Design Free Thursday post on Anamorphic Illusions. Especially that first image. Yeh? Are you with me?

    I never would have guessed that those shapes were actually painted on the surfaces in these spaces! Amazing!
