Cinematic Upside Down Street Reflections


There's something incredibly fascinating about viewing the world through upside down reflections, taken through puddles on the street. it's like we're seeing the world with a new set of eyes, a perspective most of us are not really used to. It may take a second or two for your eyes to get adjusted to what's really going on.

"They’re all untouched, except the 5th one (but it’s still a very light cropping)," explains photographer Yodamanu aka Manuel Plantin. "I shoot it as I frame it, cropped a lot, they wouldn’t make sense. It’s about seeing the reality the other way round on purpose. It’s not about shooting blind before cropping a lot."

"It’s fun trying because it’s challenging to frame something upside down while you focus 'upside up' - you have to try to see what I mean. For those who wonder, there’s not much editing in it either, with strong contrast lenses, a bit of saturation, the occasional weirdness of the Leica M8 sensor and you’re good to go."
