Rotate a photograph – or an artwork more generally – and it tells a new story, sometimes one that was silent before. We see patterns and movement that worked differently in the intended, correct orientation. Sometimes we even see people, gestures, faces, that were effectively, if not literally, hidden before.
Now available through Amazon: three e-books from @rotatedworks. The introductory essays tackle, in greater detail than on this website, what happens when we rotate a photograph, and why it’s fascinating, puzzling, and even important to do so.
Find the books here:
Each book has 60 beautiful historical photos, chosen for their impact and the fillip that rotation brings.
There is a lovely, careful analysis of the books by art writer Slavka Sverakova, here.
