Anamorphosis in the visual arts is a perspective technique that presents a distorted image when viewed. However, the distortion disappears when reflected in a curved mirror or at a specific angle. ⁣

Today, artists like Luis González Palma are intrigued by anamorphosis and the ability to manipulate perception. González Palma explores perception as a means of understanding how we respond to what we see. He uses photography to create portraits, tableaux, abstract compositions, installations, and objects. ⁣
