New York City-based director and photographer Randy Scott Slavin pushes the boundaries of perception with his two part panoramic series “Alternate Perspectives.” Stitching several photographs together, his “Alternate Perspectives” series creates a different (and arguably more thorough) representation of the scenes he photographs by incorporating their every angle.
Of his series, Slavin says, “When I began shooting landscapes, I was compelled to push the perspective. After experimenting heavily with panoramic photography, I developed a technique that could realize my desire to turn the real into the surreal. The result is something rebellious, beautiful and provocative.”
The series features both city and landscapes that show a 360 degree view. Particularly fascinating, in this writer’s opinion, are the cityscapes in which buildings are warped and almost overpowering, reflecting the experience of existence in a large metropolitan setting. Because the images must be stitched together in post-production, Slavin is usually unable to predict the outcome of a panoramic image until he is able to digitally assemble it.
More of Slavin’s work and prints of his images are available on his website.
