Brilliant Façade photo series

This incredible photo series is about to pick that thread you've left untouched since The Truman Show crept into the back of your mind.

Façades is the ongoing project of French photographer Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy, presenting a world in which buildings consist only of their outward two-dimensional surface.

"The façade is the first thing we see, it’s the surface of a building. It can be impressive, superficial or safe," explains Gaudrillot-Roy. "Just like wandering through a foreign city, I walk through the streets with these questions: what will happen if we stick to that first vision? If the daily life of “The Other” was only a scenery?"

From giant, vacant tower blocks to scenes from a Hollywood set, the photo editing trickery is impossibly accurate. We're going to be having a good look through the windows of our street thanks to Façades.
