Messing with the viewer’s perception with his mind-bending images, Germany-based photographer Maximilian Schulz uses well-placed mirrors to skew the look of the whole. Working mainly in portraits, these images come from a personal project, his 2015 series, Mirrors.
While the shots first appear to be a trick of the eye or an optical illusion, look closer and it’s apparent that the playful composition is all down to the unexpected mirrors, the reflecting image subverting the shot. From the grainy grey slats of a wooden bridge to the deep green geometric tiles of an anonymous wall, the photographs play with the idea of perspective in the ordinary, everyday.
