Congratulations to David for successfully creating an ambiguous scene with his camera. According to him, he had created numerous variations of this simple illusion. I also like the title that he has given for this photo. I find this illusory picture very thought-provoking and astonishing. This picture looks like a game where in the viewer needs to spot the difference in a mirror version. I was impressed by the clever concept of David. Keep up the great work!
About the Other Side of the Mirror
The Other Side of the Mirror was created by David MacDonald. This is yet another fascinating photo manipulation from him. He had exhibited his imagination and quirky photography ideas in order to create a confusing and deceptive scene. He can actually manipulate the perceptions of the spectators with the impossible perspectives that he has created in the picture.
About the Author
David MacDonald does not consider himself an artist, although by the age of eight, he was already taking photographs and starting to use a darkroom. He studied in a liberal school that combined heavy emphasis on the arts, disciplines of advanced mathematics and engineering drawing. He was able to develop diverse abilities which came together naturally in professional photography. He is an Englishman living in Belgium, married to a Viennese and they have two multilingual sons.
David works as a movie camera man and his role is to give life and atmosphere to a director’s vision. He is now in his 48th year of working with film. He is an expert when it comes to interpretative role and the ability to add more dimension of visual interest and mood. Much of his work relies on playing with the light. He has had the good fortune to travel to both developed and remote places of the world because of his work.
He initially discovered a photo editing software that was bundled with a scanner and started to play with it. He was soon exploring other graphics applications. This has now become his passion equaled only by his lifetime passion for Asian and Oriental inspired cooking. His main interest is the creation of photo-realistic Escher like illusions, combining photography and computer generated imagery. A number of these are published in illusion books and can be found on the Web.
