Anamorphic: an intentional distortion.

The artistic duo Ella and Pitr (a.k.a. Papier Peintres) are best known for their street frame collages have taken their art to another level. Together they scouted out beautiful spaces that had been abandoned and then spent the next two months in Eitenne transforming these rare spots into wonderful illusions. Depending on the angle you take your picture in front of the backdrops, one can seem as if they’re actually captured in a frame.

All in all, they painted 11 different anamorphic paintings that were photographed and used as part of a campaign for the National Dramatic Center of St. Etienne.
