Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé has been working on a fascinating series of landscapes using a bizarre lighting method involving a suspended glowing square. The images above are not photoshopped, the 1×1 meter light is instead hung in the center of each photograph and the resulting image shows the unique form of illumination that creeps into the surrounding area. Paillé says his goal is to redefine what a landscape photograph is by questioning its reality, creating a kind of poetic moment in space and time. You can see many more of his Alternative Landscapes on Flickr.

      Hi! I believe it is -some of his other pictures on Flickr show the beginnings of his work with what looks like christmas lights, so the square is just a different style of execution. Some of his other photography on Facebook was beautifully lit as well. I’m glad you love it as I do!

        It is so unreal and real at the same time. The forest ones remind me of the Lion the Witch and the Wardobe, like a window to somewhere else.
