• Visual Illusions by Blommers Schumm for Dove
  • Posted 47 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 49305 Views
  • Dutch photography duo Blommers Schumm (Anuschka Blommers & Niels Schumm) have created a rather clever new campaign for beauty products brand Dove. By flipping the entire image vertically, but keeping the eyes and mouth the same way up, our eyes are tricked into thinking we're looking at a regular face. Drag one of the images into Photoshop and flip it the right way up (or just turn your laptop/iPhone upside down) and you'll see how wrong we are…

    • Wow. If you hit ctrl+alt+down arrow on your keyboard, you can see the image flipped upside down and notice the eyes and mouth. Then hit ctrl+alt+up arrow to make your screen back to normal.
