Original Assignment

Mission: Defamiliarize created by Brian Short (andessurvivor.com)
Make a set of ten photos which take something familiar to you--a town, building, object, etc.--and defamiliarize it, make it seem foreign. Use a mix of extreme closeups, weird lighting, foreground/background focusing and odd angles and other effects to make something that you know very well seem like something you've never seen before, something spooky and/or luminous and/or magical. See an example at http://www.andessurvivor.com/2012/01/23/mission-defamiliarize/
