Imagine the Statue of Liberty. If you have never seen it in person, you most likely have a common image of it that most people have.
Thanks to the media, popular culture, and instant access to virtually any information, we all have a common perspective on things. What if we looked at the Statue of Liberty from a different angle?
There is an excellent corner on Reddit called “Alternate Angles” which may have an answer to many things we see at their face value. This new online community made in the year 2020, shows a whole new viewpoint of “iconic events and places in history beyond the traditional well-known photos and videos”.
The result is fresh perspectives and never-before-seen angles that prove there is more than meets the eye. There is an interview with the team behind the alternate angles subreddit.
