What would happen if we could isolate iconic buildings and place them in beautiful natural settings? This is photographer and designer Anton Repponen's latest project, Misplaced → New York. He was able to put these stunning architectural monuments in the spotlight by placing them in a natural landscape, where they can be observed without all the distracting elements that surrounds them in a town, like New York City in this case.


The visual pollution around the buildings, such as hot dog stands, buses or simply tourists crowds, turns these structures into something else. These building are works of art by leading contemporary and classic architects. They spent years to design and plan them. Now Anton Repponen is giving these edifices the attention they deserve, by placing them in organic settings devoid of human intervention, giving us the opportunity to look at these buildings for what they truly are. The result is an amazing set of surreal and mystic images that captivates the viewer.
