As we are all too well aware, when visiting famous landmarks they're often nothing like they appear in the glossy photographs you see in magazines or online and taking your own good photo of the place you're visiting isn't easy either because of the large crowds, but there is a solution to this problem and it involves turning the camera the other way.
Going against the grain and choosing to face away from famous landmarks whilst everyone faces towards them, British photographer Oliver Curtis manages to capture famous landmarks and their surroundings like you've never seen them before and it all started in 2012 when Curtis was visiting the Pyramids of Giza.
Facing away from the Pyramids a few years back Curtis found himself drawn to a newly constructed golf course and found it's contrast intriguing. Ever since then he's been photographing famous landmarks from an entirely new perspective with fascinating results.
