This Photographer's Shots of Real Buildings Look Just Like Optical Illusions

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Serbian photographer Nikola Olic lives and works in Dallas, Texas, but he also travels the world with a keen eye that’s always looking for unusual angles on buildings and other structures. The result is a collection of architectural photographs that look more like impossible optical illusions.

Olic’s abstract shots make the world seem like a collection of M.C. Escher sketches, except that you can actually visit every single locale he photographs. Here’s a collection of some of his more recent work, which (more often than not) will leave you scratching your head, wondering exactly what you’re looking at. [Structure Photography]
