25. Randy Scott Slavin
Location: New York
New York-based photographer Randy Scott Slavin's work takes on a form that strays from traditional photography of city skylines. Instead of going for the typical view of the landscape format following the horizon line, Slavin opts to decenter the viewer all together by joining hundreds of photographs together to create distorted views of familiar American cityscapes. The series is appropriately named Alternative Perspectives and provides an unprecedented point of view of places like New York City; his photographs evoke a sensation somewhere between myopia, kaleidoscopic psychedelics, and being sucked into a wormhole. Slavin comes as an alternative from the straightforwardness of most other architectural photographers, and reminds us that photography does not always depict things as they actually are.
