The skewed, top-down perspective isn’t something new in the world of photography but Christian Åslund’s wide angle shots certainly gave it a new twist. His series of photographs for the shoe brand Jim Rickey had models lying flat on the streets of Hong Kong pretending to walk, sit, and hang on to perfectly upright objects. The height from which these photos were taken sets it apart from other series utilizing this unique perspective. This amusing series is a tribute to the old-school 2D computer games.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
