Weird Upside-Down Face Portraits by Anelia Loubser

Anelia Loubser is a South-Africa based photographer who conducted one of the most outstanding series of portraits I’ve ever seen. Titled “Alienation”, series consists of upside down face portraits that at first sight look like the faces of aliens or some extraterrestrial beings.

Photographer perfectly plays with the composition and facial expressions to micic the bottom parts of the face with wrinkles on a forehead. As a result, the portraits look very natural and viewers can easily confuse whether these are the upside down portraits of a human being’s faces or some leaked alien photos from the NASA .

Anyway, according to the author of this series, the goal of making these portraits was to challenge viewers perception on the context and perspective.  “This collection of portraits challenges the viewer by using creative tactics based on the concept, If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” , explains Anelia Liubser.
