Saturday Snapshots #85


 Escher architecture, City of London – 2009

MC Escher was a Dutch Graphic artist, best known for his mathematically-inspired woodcuts, lithographs and mezzotints, which often feature physically impossible constructions, explorations of infinity, and architecture.  My friend calls it headache art.  In this picture, a London curved glass building is reflecting its neighbour in ways that make it seem like a physical impossibility – the only reminder of the real world is the spiral staircase partially reflected on the right.  Eat your heart out, Escher.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. All photographs previously featured may be viewed on my Saturday Snapshot archive pages.  Many photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store. They make gifts, for friends or for yourself!

    That does look exactly like Escher! I used to be fascinated with this artist! Reminds me now of the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris by Jean Nouvel; nothing like this but very very innovative nevertheless

    Very interesting lines you captured in the pic. The experts would probably have a long talk n how the lines do this and the colors do that and and and… I just say cool.
