Looking up at towering skyscrapers is a common sight for many city dwellers, but few get the chance to glance straight down at the bustling streets below.
By angling her camera straight down from all-glass skyscrapers, the lights of the city are reflected perfectly in colorful compositions. The illuminated city streets blend into the buildings’ mirrored surfaces.
“I just think symmetry is beautiful … it makes the images almost abstract. If you were just looking down from a tall glass building, you’d see an incredible view of the city streets,” Dotan told Mashable.
Each perfectly aligned composition blurs the lines between the city and its reflection – so much that it creates an optical illusion for the viewer. Dotan noted, particularly in her photograph of Columbus Circle in particular, the statue of Columbus becomes almost like a human face when flipped upside down.
Reflections From Above is an ongoing project and she is always looking to add more reflections. Dotan’s series, as well as other professional work, can also be viewed on her website.
