Floating Cube Illusion Spearheads Alternative Landscape Scenery

These alluring images were created by 26 year-old French-Canadian photographer, Benoit Paille. After becoming a professional, Paille has held exhibitions in Canada, Japan, L.A, Barcelona, Moscow, Ukraine and Paris:

The glass beach eventually became known as “The Dumps.” Check out the Wikipedia article on this to learn more about the beach and it’s back story.

This eerie photography taken in woodland is entitled “And Then…”. It is taken from the great project between designer Nicola Yeoman and photographer Jo Metson Scott. I think the series of photographs are fantastic, and lured me in the first time I saw them. My favourite is the pirate ship above, but I love the one at the end of this post, too…
