Vortography: A Comeback

Before there was photoshop to easily manipulate photographs, in 1917 Vortography was the first abstract kind of photography invented by Alvin Langdon Coburn. It works by means of photographing objects through three mirrors that create a triangular form, enabling a sense of kaleidoscopic repetition. Though Coburn’s practise of this subjective art was short, vortography has made a recent comeback among modern photographers who adapt the technique with a variation of mirror formats. Some recent examples can be viewed below, in some cases, giving the viewer that uncanny inception sensation, that director Christoper Nolan expressed so well.
