Photographer Oliver Curtis‘ first solo exhibit entitled Volte-face recently premiered at London’s Royal Geographical Society just a few days ago. Taken over a period of four years, Volte-face is a series of images taken at the world’s most photographed historic sites, buildings and monuments – but looking away from them. Along with the exhibition a book of the project, featuring an essay by Geoff Dyer, will be published by Dewi Lewis Publishing Ltd.
It’s pretty interesting to catch a unique perspective from some of the most visited places on the planet, and to think I thought it was all fun and rainbows before realizing there’s a lot more than meets the eye, err…my friends social media posts.
Our first view comes from Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil .
