Alternate Perspectives – Surreal Photography by Randy Scott Slavin

In his Alternate Perspectives series, Randy Scott Slavin aims to change our view of the world. The American filmmaker and photographer portrays surrealism based on reality. His photographs showcase cityscapes and land in a 360-degree view – a perspective which, according to Slavin, is closer to the human eye than a 2D photograph since the eye is more encompassing and dynamic than a camera.

The Alternate Perspectives series created by Slavin consists of photographs of a single landmark or location stitched together to create a 360-degree image in a flat picture. The results are simply surreal, and sometimes eerie, scenarios that depict the scale and portion of Slavin’s surroundings when he captured the pictures. He can take more than 100 pictures of a single location before stitching them together to create a stereographic projection.

To find landscapes for his pictures, Slavin travels across America, taking in views extending from Florida to California. He states that his work’s calming nature is like an antidote to his face-paced lifestyle in New York. Slavin chooses locations for his work in various ways – sometimes he would accidentally stumble onto an ideal shot and other times he would know exactly what he wants to capture.

According to Slavin, photographing the location is the least time-consuming part of his work. What’s more time-taking is finding the right location to shoot and figuring out the best spot to take the picture from. Since an individual can’t light a landscape manually, it is important to wait for the right time to take the picture. This could sometimes mean that waiting and watching for long periods of time.
