Inspiring Artwork Combining Geometry & Photography

Read the article

There’s a certain style of art that really catches my attention in inspiration galleries where artists combine geometry and photography to produce striking images. I’m a big fan of using simple shapes to create interesting designs, but the combination with photos really helps create abstract artwork with intense colours and detail. Today’s showcase features 30 inspiring examples of this geometric photography trend, showing how collage style artwork can be created by chopping up an image into patterns and shapes.

    I love the way these look, thanks so much for posting. May I ask where you found these? Do you have any links for where to find more examples? I’d really like to see more. I tried Googling geometric photography and even adding in collage & design but I wasn’t able to find much. Is there a universal term for this style of design? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks Chris!

      I spent a good few hours scouring inspiration galleries and portfolio sites using many keyword variants when creating showcases like these. Geometric, photography and collage were amongst the keywords I used too!
