Murat Germen's "Muta-Morphosis" Transforms Cities into Art

It turns out the Israeli artist Victor Enrich—remember him?—isn't the only one using photo manipulation to create unsettling versions of our urban environments. MIT-trained architect/photographer Murat Germen uses photo collages to compress and distort perspective in attempt to apply a soul to the city. The effect is almost painterly, thanks to the blurring of edges between photographs and, in the end, Germen's project, entitled "Muta-Morphosis," looks like something Tim Burton might have dreamt up. The London scene (above) is just one of many, click over to Architizer to check out a few more.
