Georges Rousse

October 14th, 2010

Georges Rousse is a French photographer who makes photos of desolate or abandoned spaces. But before he does that, he paints some precise geometrical shapes which are some kind of optical illusions.

    I think that this is so amazing, I’ve seen work like this before and the precision needed is incredible. Everything has to line up perfectly or it just doesn’t work. I think that the contrast of the bold geometric shapes and the old beaten up buildings is especially nice!

    [...] The work of Georges Rousse is unique in the world of photography, as his process goes far beyond just lighting a scene and capturing an image on film.  Rousse is, in essence, a “sculptural photographer”, in that he alters the scene with elaborate and precise paint patterns and physical manipulations to yield an entirely new space.  Much of his work consists of altering abandoned places, and to the casual observer, it may appear that Rousse has superimposed color and geometry upon these images.  But Georges Rousse spends days carefully crafting a new form to these scenes, with color, light and sometimes wood that results in truly amazing imagery.  The abandoned places of the world take on a new meaning under his lens, and we the observer are enriched as a result.
