Ahh! Someone catch that baby! Wait a second…
You might have to look at this picture for quite a while before you realize just what’s going on. These families aren’t jumping and swinging off of a building in London, it’s just a clever illusion by Leandro Erlich. He had me fooled.
This piece, titled The Dalston House, was erected in Hackney just off Dalston Junction in London. It’s located on a vacant lot that has been empty since it was bombed during the Second World War.
To see more of Leandro’s mind-bending work, visit his online portfolio here. This artist is a master of illusion. Even if you know what you’re seeing is a visual trick, you might just fall for it.
If you live in London, I think I know a good spot to take your 2014 Christmas card photo.
