Film reels of classic movies turned into art

THE UNSEEN SEEN, Alice in Wonderland, 1951

Well this looks just gorgeous! Austrian photographer Reiner Riedler created a photo series called 'The Unseen Seen' in a most impressive way: by snapping shots of the film reels of famous movies, making an impressive art work with each, that's somehow uniquely different from the others.

The Austrian artist gained access to an incredible archive of film reels from The Deutsche Kinemathek in Berlin. You can see how some of the reels come together given the tone of the movies while others just look breathtakingly textured. Riedler says:

The concept is to confront the viewer with the image of an object (filmrolls) and in doing so recall images from the spectator's memory. By reading the movie title, I want to generate emotions and images from our memory.
