Author: Powel Norbert altered a bunch of his travel photos to create what he thinks is a perfect reality.
Sometimes the daily walk down the same street can feel drab, the parked car you pass every day, grey, and the graffiti on that wall irritating and uninspiring - but the next morning, the exact same can appear bright, happy and uplifting.
Multidisciplinary artist Pawel Nolbert took the human struggle to understand reality – our tendency to see our emotions reflected in our surroundings, distort reality on social media, and never remember things how they actually happened – and did the happiest thing he possibly could with it.
Pawel’s Constructed series is a bunch of his travel photos that have been altered to create his perfect reality – and for him that means loads and loads of really cool, bright blocks beautifully placed in an every day landscape (yes, it's not just the total lack of people in these shots that create such a calm, hopeful mood - though that might help).
We love how normal stills of urban landscapes are photoshopped subtly. Somehow, all the graphical shapes and brilliant pinks, reds, purples, greens and blues seem to fit naturally into the landscape - and rather than undermining the every day, it's enhanced so you can appreciate it a little more.
