Alex Pieri decided to share a peculiar illusion with us. What you can see in this photo is Brussels’ Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium. I did some research, but wasn’t able to find a single source explaining this surreal installation. Only success I had, was finding out that the artist René Magritte had something to do with it. Also, I was able to isolate the person who took this photo – a flickr artist who goes under the name gbastiani. When I first obtained the photo, my feelings were mixed: it was obviously an amazing photograph, but immediately I realized there was nothing out of ordinary going on. Or was there? While I continued doing my research, I stumbled upon a daylight shot of the museum (attached inside this article). What I expected to see was quite opposite! Now call me naive, but could the original still exist if there was no digital editing? I’m calling out our Brussels fans for more clues!
