A Neverending Droste Story

Ah, the Droste effect — both beautiful and baffling at the same time. You know what the Droste effect is. It’s a picture inside of a picture, inside of a picture…. Here’s an easy way to think of it. Look in a mirror with another mirror behind you. What you’ll see is the same recursive image over and over again, but it appears smaller and smaller with each internal reflection — like a neverending sequence of the same image. Still can’t picture it? That’s okay. We’ve put together an image stream for you, with some outstanding examples of the Droste effect at work. Check them out!
