For his latest work, Xavier Portela was inspired by Netflix’s Stranger Things, taking an “upside-down” look at some of the world’s largest cities.
Portela is well-known for Glow, a series of neon photographs. But for his latest work, he chose to take a look an upside-down look at the world’s largest and busiest cities. While he simply used the reflection of water puddles, it feels as if we are truly looking at another dimension.
Over the past two years, Portela visited several cities,including New York, Chicago, Hong Kong and Busan armed with his Canon 5D Mark III and 5D Mark IV. Each photograph was then processed for color in Adobe Lightroom and flipped vertically, so you see the reflection first.
