The Leaning Houses of Minnesota Photographed by Cameron Wittig

A lot of my personal work plays with perception and how photography is often presumed to be 100% honest when in reality it can be easily manipulated to lie. If you use it correctly, it is just as good as telling untruths as it is truths.—Cameron Wittig

Duluth Typologies is Minneapolis-based photographer Cameron Wittig‘s capture of common midwestern homes characteristic of Duluth, Minnesota. The series’ title is a play on Bernd and Hilla Becher’s typologies of industrial German architecture. Wittig has come up with his own systematic classification of structures by taking these houses built on steep hills and changing the perception of their form. He acheives this with a tip of his camera, squaring the sidewalk with the bottom of the frame.

    I’ve taken pictures like this in San Francisco in 2005. Haven’t many people done it before anyway?
