Photos From Above Show Models Playing in a Two Dimensional World

2dworldabove-1

Here’s a series of clever pictures by Stockholm-based photographer Christian Åslund, who turned the ground of various city locations into a backdrop by having his models lie on their sides. By taking advantage of patterns, structures, and objects, the subjects look as though they’re strolling on platforms, hanging from ledges, and resting on walls.

    Based on the urban environment,I found myself thinking of the game ‘Sideway’ from a couple years ago. Did similar things with the gameplay… (turned it into a 2D game from a ‘real’ 3D sort of world)
