Bernhard Lang Photographs Illusory Images of MountainsJune 3, 2021
There is a long history of linking arbitrary natural images to familiar objects. This phenomenon is called pareidolia.
the phenomenon psychological is responsible for a range of human experiences from the childhood pastime of cloud watching to the Rorschach Test and the idea that there is a man on the moon. On the other hand, it helped name some of the rock formations photographed by Bernhard Lang.
in your Faces of Pareidolia-Mountain, Lang documents both known and obscure landscapes, which resemble human profiles when turned through a 90-degree angle. Many of the series' mountains reference regional legends such as “The Sleeping Witch” and “Sleeping Greek Woman,” while others stem from Lang's own interpretation of “Golem,” which frames Slovenia's highest peak of Vršič Pass to reveal a face look like the magic figure.
