Whenever you see a photo of famous landmarks like the Great Wall of China or the Pyramids of Giza, the view is always the same. Very rarely does an image reveal what surrounds the area. Most of the time we depend on our brains to imagine what is behind places like the Mao Mausoleum in Beijing, China. Photographer Oliver Curtis spent four years visiting iconic landmarks and photographing the opposite direction. His series *Volte-face* does not reveal the monument, landscape or structure, rather, it shows viewers a different vantage point of overlooked areas. His exhibition will be in full display at the Royal Geographical Society in London, England from September 19th, to October 14th, 2016. In the meantime you can enjoy a sneak peek at *Volte-face*.
