We are tired of seeing always the same picture all over Facebook and Instagram. Somebody goes to Paris, and during weeks they are constantly uploading the same pictures of the Eiffel tower from every possible angle.


British photographer Oliver Curtis was inspired by the Pyramids of Giza, back in 2012, to start his Volte-face project. Instead of photographing the famous monument, he was inspired by a green patch of golf grass nearby. And so began his intriguing series, always facing the “wrong” way to take a picture.


He has visited the Taj Mahal in Agra (India), the Mona Lisa in Paris (France), the Parthenon in Athens (Greece), the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles (USA) and many more. And all of his pictures are taken facing the wrong way, but they still look cool.



See the rest of his work on his personal site.

    My guess is, that the inspiration came to Oliver at the Pyramids of Giza and not at the Pyramids of Gaza.
