Lino Russo, a graphic designer from Italy, invented a new word: skymetric. It sounds bizarre, but is only fitting for his new creation. Composed of words “sky” and “metric” (as in “geometric”), Skymetric is the name for an amazing photography project that takes various elements of modern industrial architecture out of the context and puts them against clear blue sky.
The result is simply breathtaking. The architecture features a palette of vibrant colours that blend beautifully with the intact background of the sky and create a regular, almost geometrically organized compositions. Russo’s photographs are like paintings that highlight harmony and symbiosis of colours rather than pictured objects.
