Gustav Willeit: Perspe Series

Perspe, a surreal photo series of invented environments by Gustav Willeit.

Gustav Willeit is an Italian freelance photographer. From 2000 – 2004, he studied at F+F Schule für Kunst und Mediendesign in Zurich, Switzerland. Thereafter, he worked as an assistant for various photographers until he started his own business in 2006. In addition to his commissioned work, he loves to produce self-initiated photo projects. His ‘Perspe’ series conveys the vision of a surreal parallel universe. Through retouching and reflection, Gustav Willeit creates imaginary worlds. Feel free and read more below the first image.

The viewer’s perception is tumbling between reality and fantasy, while the natural origins are still recognizable. Human elements can often be found in his images. They serve as a balance between reality and illusion. A small selection of his images can be found below. I recommend you to visit Gustav Willeit’s website to see more of his fascinating work.
