A Dizzying, Kaleidoscopic View of the World Looking Up

“I was photographing in Paris, exploring my interest in architecture when I became fascinated by the outlines of the tops of the buildings against the sky,” Toronto artist Brent Townshend writes on his website. “By looking upward and taking in a wider view, the scene changes radically from what we normally experience.” Townshend creates kaleidoscopic scenes that dizzy and thrill. Website Faith is Torment introduced us to his all-encompassing view, which twists and swirls the horizon, leaving a gorgeous nucleus of images in the center of the picture.
