French street artists play with perspective in abandoned buildings.

“Anamorphoses” is a new series of installations from French street artists Ella & Pitr, otherwise known as Papier Peintres, that allows visitors to play with perspective in dilapidated spaces that serve little other purpose. The oversized picture frames provide the perfect opportunity to pose for photos, which in some cases look like you’ve actually stepped inside the painting.

The duo completed the project as part of a campaign for the National Dramatic Center of St Etienne, choosing locations that they refer to as “forgotten parts of the city.” Once complete, the artists worked with the people of Etienne who acted as volunteers, and were more than happy to pose and have their pictures taken.

Have a look through the gallery below and you’re unlikely to see abandoned buildings in the same light ever again:
