Anamorphosis Art of Bernard Pras

Anamorphosis is a distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to use special devices or occupy a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image. The word "anamorphosis" is derived from the Greek prefix ana-, meaning back or again, and the word morphe, meaning shape or form.

There are two main types of anamorphosis: Perspective (oblique) and Mirror (catoptric). You can check my previous post here as an example for mirror anamorphosis.

Contemporary French artist Bernard Pras was born in the South-west of France in a toy shop. After more than 20 years as a painter, and also a sculptor of recovered objects, in 1997 Pras came up with an astonishing form of expression. Using photography as a basis for the creation, he creates amazing pieces of art.
