Reallusion – where does manipulation begin?


“In photography, today’s technical possibilities are pushing the boundaries further and further,” says photographer Nico Schaerer. In the series “Reallusion”, questions are to be raised in the viewer: What is real? Where does the dream begin? Where does the illusion end?

“Reallusion” juxtaposes Nico Schaerer’s expressive landscape photographs with illustrations by 3D artist Silvan Zuppiger.

The geometric forms of the illustrations break through the still landscapes and create a symbiotic image. A picture represents what the viewer recognizes – seems to recognize. “Reallusion” asks us to think about where manipulation begins.
