20 Illusional Droste Effect Images that will Twist Your Mind

First, I want to greet all the readers of Pixzii a Happy New Year, I hope you all have a prosperous new year. In today’s post I’m going to show you some really cool images done in “Droste effect.” “Droste effect,” is named after a 1904 package of Droste brand cocoa. The Droste effect illustrates a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar photograph would realistically be expected to show. Only in hypothesis could this go on without end, but virtually it will go on only as long as the resolution of the image permits, which is relatively short, since each cycle of repetition is exponentially diminish the image’s size.

A perfect example of the Droste effect can be simply produced by placing two mirrors in front of each other. Another technique would be to shoot one’s own television with a video camera, while showing the output of the video camera on the same television.Let’s view now some of these awesome droste effect images.

  1. This is quite interesting. Some of them are outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Truly enjoy reading your posts on your site. They are always interesting to read. Will keep your website in my bookmarks now. Thanks.

  3. All of these images, apart from the chess board and the top-hat man, are more than simply the Droste effect. Rather than just an image recursively *embedded* into itself, these images are warped to recursively *merge* in to themselves, forming those distinctive infinite spirals. This would be more appropriately termed the Esher effect, becuse it was first created by graphic artist M.C Escher in a pictire called ‘Print Gallery’. This is a great website about Escher and the Droste effect:

    It is possible to create your own Escher effect pictures using GIMP with the Mathmap plugin, you can find a tutorial here:

  4. @orgone Thanks for the link Orgone. I should have post a link too for those curious to know how to create their own Droste effect.

  5. I especially liked the one where the two guys were each showing a picture to a camera of the scene being photographed at the time. Found you thru a stumble.

  6. It’s great pictures and amazing trick. I’m still wondering how to created. Usually, I only use Gimp for simple image editing since I don’t have paid software such as Adobe Photoshop. from bathroom fan.
