Klinger, from Frankfurt am Main, was exploring this sculpture by Olafur Eliasson situated in a Munich office complex. You see the photographer’s first attempt below. A fairly straightforward shot, made with the camera at eye level from about 75 feet with a 50mm lens, the picture is a clean rendering of the artwork, but it doesn’t do the Möbius-like staircase justice. For that, Klinger had to switch lenses, move within 3 feet, get low and aim up. Result? The unapologetically trippy interpretation you see above.
