Nowadays, almost everyone carries a smartphone in their pocket, which means that anyone can become witness something strange and immediately capture it on camera. Alternatively, they can create something unusual themselves by playing with perspective. We have gathered a collection of photographs that require a second look to fully understand what is happening. These images showcase extraordinary events or perhaps the author played with perspective and went a bit too far.
Thanks to the prevalence of smartphones, we are able to capture moments that would have been missed or forgotten in the past. These photographs challenge our perception and demonstrate how easily our eyes can be deceived. Whether it’s a clever optical illusion or an unexpected juxtaposition, the images we’ve collected will leave you questioning what is real and what is not. So take a closer look and decide for yourself: are these photos capturing something strange, or are they simply clever illusions created by the photographer’s skilful use of perspective?
