Leaning Houses in Minnesota Photographed by Cameron Wittig
For his project titled "Duluth Typologies', Minneapolis-based photographer Cameron Wittig used a simple and very effective camera trick to change our perception of these common midwestern homes built on steep hills. He acheived this with a tip of his camera, squaring the sidewalk with the bottom of the frame. The result is a series of images that play tricks on our eyes and baffles our perception. "A lot of my personal work plays with perception and how photography is often presumed to be 100% honest when in reality it can be easily manipulated to lie." Cameron says, " If you use it correctly, it is just as good as telling untruths as it is truths."
