Perspectives in Impossible Architecture


 Impossible architecture created in the style of the late great Dutch artist M.C. Escher

Infinite recursive architecture
An old roommate of mine had decorated the walls of our apartment with the pages from M.C. Escher's Print Gallery.  All these years later, I'm beginning to think they may have had an affect on me. I remember thinking that I'd never seen the fusion between this type of art and photography before so I set out to experiment a bit.  Almost all of these photos were taken of buildings in Bangkok, Thailand.
