Richard Silver travels the world and documents famous landmarks with an aim to show-off the world from a total different perspective. In his series Tilt-Shift, his goal is to shrink iconic landmarks or everyday street scenes, and give them an unusual feel.
Silver says, “People always ask me, How do I make people look so small or why do I make people look so small? Simple, we are!” Thus, his goal with the project is to “give the viewer a new way of seeing themselves and their place in the world.”
He has captured many famous places and events, including Machu Picchu in Peru, The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the Coliseum in Rome, and the Acropolis of Athens. Silver shoots normal photographs and then applies an artificial shallow depth of field to the images using Photoshop during post-processing.
