Brighton-based landscape and aerial art photographer Joseph Ford has completed a trompe l’oeil for . Titled ‘Anamorphosis’, this project uses the lines of a tennis court distorted and overplayed onto an abandoned swimming pool that can only be read from a certain perspective. Joseph and his team spent three days in freezing conditions setting up and shooting an anamorphic tennis match. “Anamorphosis is a distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to occupy a specific vantage point to view the image correctly,” says Joseph.

2.5 kilometres of blue gaffer tape, seven assistants, two anamorphosis artists, two parkour artists and one derelict swimming pool in Glasgow were used for the shoot. Everything is done for real. The parkour artists, Kevin Francomme from Parkour Generations and David Banks, jumped off balconies, ran sideways along the walls and generally risked serious injury to create these images. Sick!
