Perspective in the Age of Digital Photography (LKL Maths-Art Seminar)

Learn about the mathematics of perspective by looking how digital photography works

Perspective is usually discussed as a drawing system used by artists, and its place in the history of art. But perspective pictures can be made effortlessly by taking photographs, and this is the starting point
for an exploration of the geometry of perspective, and its implications for the way the brain interprets pictures. We have no difficulty in viewing pictures from oblique angles and from distances that do not reconstruct the geometry of the original scene. Some insight into what the brain is doing can be gained from the distortions seen in photographs taken with short and long lenses.
