I feel the German born and now Melbourne based photographer, Michael Kai gains a great deal of satisfaction with messing with our heads. His current photographic project, This Side Up is a series of manipulated, distorted and tweaked photographs that, if he was alive today, Escher would proudly hang on his ceiling wall. At first glance they seem like completely normal everyday photographs, but at closer inspection and following a killer headache as your brain ties itself up in knots, you realise they're not.

Check out some samples form this series as well as his borisgplatz series to the right of this post and for more visit miphotodesign.com
