“In these pieces I deconstruct and reconstruct photographs for a new visual reality.”- Simon Gardiner

Simon Gardiner has done groups of work titled Upside I and Upside II  which have strong geometry lines, symmetry and look like a kaleidoscope. Like Filip Dujardin and  Kawahara Kazuhiko his photographs are mostly of architecture. On his website he says that he was initially inspired by the movie Inception then he became more interested in architectural de-constructivism. The ideas of fragmentation and manipulating ideas of a structure’s surface or skin are some of the elements that characterize de-constructivism. He says “the finished visual appearance of buildings that exhibit the many de-constructivist “styles” is characterized by a stimulating unpredictability and a controlled chaos.” And he defines his photography as  de-constructivism photography.
