Anyone who has visited in the world famous tourist spots in recent years, knows how difficult it is to achieve the perfect shot. It is almost impossible to get a good picture, not filmed at the same time hundreds of selfie sticks. But British photographer Oliver Curtis outside the box stepped up to the task of avoiding the crowd. He just removes famous places, pointing the camera in the opposite direction. A series of photographs called Volte-face. The photographer was born the idea for the project when he was at the pyramids in Giza. "Nearby, I saw a newly built Golf course, its paths, and bright green. I thought that this visual sandwich of contrasting colors, textures and shapes of interest... because of the uniqueness of my whereabouts. I was standing near one of the great wonders of the world, turning in the wrong direction".
