The saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder and art is certainly a take it or leave it thing for most people, with some paintings selling for millions of pounds when they look like a five year old kid with a paint brush could’ve knocked them up
But this series of photographs taken by artist Paul Reiffer over a period of three years is undeniably a thing of beauty.
Paul travelled the world, from New York to Singapore, and with his custom camera that shot at 80 mega pixels per image, managed to get some shots that will never be forgotten.
The photos are amazing and not only show the passion Paul evidently has for his job but also showcase some of the most famous landscapes in the world.
Paul spoke about his work and claimed:
Some of my images require a lot of planning, unfortunately, one of the ways I decided to get a different view was to get onto rooftops.
Some with full permissions and authorised access, others less so.
Ironically, while legitimate access takes a lot of bureaucracy, it’s the more ‘unofficial’ shoots which take the most planning.
Generally if you search online, or see a city in a magazine, the same old shots will appear time and time again, so while I use other images for reference, I tend to then start researching using tools like Google satellite view and 3D maps along with sunrise/sunset apps to plan my own take on the view of a city.
If you’ve not got the travelling bug after seeing these, you never will!
