Captivated by 3D anaglyph photography, Simonology’s work encourages viewers to leave their imagination open and enter a place of fantasy where the transformative possibilities of an old technology are brought into the foreground. Intriguing formations, structures and interactions become abstract artworks that allow the observer to contemplate a subject’s three-dimensionality as it is frozen in time.
The colourful series plays with movement and perspective, revealing a hidden depth when wearing 3D glasses. Everyday objects and simple movements are literally re-envisioned, first by Simonology and second by viewers fusing the colour-coded images back together.
Born and raised in Germany, Simon studied communication design in Düsseldorf and began a career as an art director and designer of perfume packaging in Hamburg and Amsterdam. Shortly after making his home in Sydney in early 2012, Simon began to pursue his long passion for photography mainly shooting portraiture. It was then that he started experimenting with 3D anaglyph photography, developing his unique angle which gives his work a hidden twist.
