Surreal Photos of Conceptual Architecture

Conceptual photographer Xavier Delory has created his own Inception-style portfolio of surreally altered architecture. The Belgium-born artist shares that his digital manipulations — sometimes composed of a dozen different pictures — “[explore] the landscape in mutation and the drifts of modern man,” shifting our perception of the world around us. What at first appears to be an average family home is slowly and subtly realized as a grim compound with no doors to escape and no windows to allow air. Using a tilt-shift lens, Delory creates wafer-thin skyscrapers slicing through the air. Towering, ramshackle structures represent urban decay, and historical buildings look more like theatrical set pieces than the robust landmarks we’re used to. Check out Delory’s conceptual photo mind-benders in our gallery.
