“Out of Place” is a clever series of photo manipulations by German photographer Robert Rickhoff, who starts with somewhat mundane photographs taken around town and then adds in elements that don’t belong. A residential scene shows a “speed jump”, streets are turned into skateboard ramps, and highways are transformed into volleyball courts. Each scene makes you look twice and smile at the absurdity of what it seems to show.
Rickhoff’s work reminds us a tiny bit of Erik Johansson’s impossible Photoshopped scenes, except they’re a lot less bizarre.
