Optical illusions are fun to create in photography. Colour, light and patterns can be used to create images that can be deceptive or misleading to our brains. The information that is gathered by our eyes is processed by the brain, but often what we perceive is not necessarily the true image. Images that differ from the objective reality can leave us perplexed and confused as we see that the separate details of the image don’t even make sense. The camera can be used to fool the eye so that first we see one thing, but then it can be deconstructed into something else.
With this theme we are asking you to present us with pictures where all is not as it seems. Can you use your camera to create and amuse, to imitate and confuse?
