Serge Mendzhiyskogo Photographic Collage

Share Tweet Email Reddit Flipboard WhatsApp Comments

Russian artist Serge Medzhiyskogo produces magnificent urban scenes from photographic strips. The process, essentially collage, is a subtle manipulation of a straight forward image. Above, you’ll see a piece documenting the city of Moscow. I like the similarity to an average tourist poster, and I like how Mendzhiyskogo’s collage questions how pieces of the landscape fit together – even if we, the viewers, are aware of the look and feel of the original image.

A few more examples follow. (via Fubiz).
