Currently living in Barcelona, Brazilian photographer Bruno Alencastro wanted to capture his experience in Europe by photographing the city from a different perspective. The task wouldn’t be easy, considering millions of travelers flock to the city each year to photograph some of the city’s most well-loved monuments. Thus, Alencastro took to the sky, creating a set of 360-degree aerial photographs that transform areas of Barcelona into small globes.

Alencastro began with Gaudí’s iconic Sagrada Familia, which he just so happened to live next to, giving him a first-hand view of the tourists that poured through the monument daily, all snapping photographs. “I had been looking for a different angle, not to repeat the thousands of almost equal photos that are posted every day on social networks,” Alencastro tells My Modern Met.

Taking to the sky, he captured 46 aerial photographs, which he then composited together and transformed into a stereographic projection. A stereographic projection allows a sphere to be projected onto a plane—just imagine how flat maps are placed onto spherical globes. In this manner, different neighborhoods and monuments in Barcelona become “small planets” unto themselves.

After tackling the Sagrada Familia, Alencastro was so inspired that he made his way across 9 other sections of the city, from beachy Barceloneta to the Montjuïc hilltop. By going up high with these 360 photos, the Brazilian photographer manages to gain a unique perspective of the streets of Barcelona.

目前居住在巴塞羅那的巴西攝影師Bruno Alencastro希望通過從不同角度拍攝這座城市來捕捉他在歐洲的經歷。考慮到每年有數百萬遊客湧向這座城市拍攝這座城市最受歡迎的紀念碑,這項任務並非易事。因此,Alencastro走向天空,創造了一組360度航拍照片,將巴塞羅那地區變成了小球。

Alencastro開始於高迪的標誌性聖家堂(Sagrada Familia),他恰好居住在旁邊,讓他親眼目睹了每天湧入紀念碑的遊客的所有拍攝照片。 “我一直在尋找一個不同的角度,而不是重複每天在社交網絡上發布的數千張幾乎相同的照片,”Alencastro告訴My Modern Met。

在拍攝天空後,他拍攝了46張航拍照片,然後將它們合成並轉換成立體投影。立體投影允許將球體投影到平面上 – 想像一下平面地圖如何放置在球形地球儀上。通過這種方式,巴塞羅那的不同街區和古蹟成為自己的“小行星”。
