‘Buildings Made of Sky’ Photo Series Turns Architecture Photography on Its Head

skybuildings

Sometimes, all that’s required to take a standard photo and turn it into something special and unique is to flip your camera upside down. That’s what artist Peter Wegner did for his Buildings Made of Sky series, which features ‘skyscrapers’ outlined by the New York City streets when you flip your perspective.

Wegner is a successful artist with a Yale education and permanent collections in museums like the New York Museum of Modern and the Guggenheim (among others). His work focuses on ‘the intersection of of art and architecture,’ and so it only makes sense that he would be the one to notice the literal skyscrapers emerging out of New York’s concrete jungle.

Here’s a selection of the photos from the series:
