Quebecois photographer Ulric Collette is at it again, creating striking composite photographs comparing the genetic similarities of different members of the same family tree. The latest portrait forms a composite picture of two models very close to Collette – his mother, 61, and his daughter, 12. The photograph reveals an extraordinary similarity between the two women even though they are separated by a generation.

German artist Cristoph Meyer has created carefully-crafted manipulated portraits that combine people’s bodies with animals’ heads.What’s fun about this series, beyond the fact that it has people with animals’ heads, is that such a silly subject is executed so well. Meyer’s manipulations seem fairly realistic, and the animals are well-matched with their human counterparts – they look like they belong.
Caras Ionut is a Romanian photographer and digital artist who makes a great case for digital art and photography. He has created an extensive body of images that are beautiful, enchanting – and impossible. He does a pretty good job of creating a dream-like mood in his works – the combination of soft and hazy colors with often impossible subjects makes for beautiful compositions.
When a cultural phenomenon as big as Star Wars roots itself in people’s imaginations, it becomes bigger than itself – it can inspire all sorts of cool new creative projects beyond the original. One such awesome re-imagination is the “Star Wars on Kinkade” series of painting mash-ups by artist Jeff Bennett. Bennett’s premise is simple – how would it look if iconic American painter Thomas Kinkade painted his idyllic country scenes and landscapes with Star Wars characters in them?
If Singlhild Nystrom survives all the crazy things she’s doing, she will have one of the coolest childhood photo albums ever – all thanks to her dad’s endless imagination and Photoshop skills. Swedish photographer Emil Nystrom digitally inserts his 1-year-old daughter into such crazy situations as fixing a car, wielding a ninja sword or flying after a plane.
We first wrote about Erik Johansson, a Swedish photographer and retoucher, 4 years ago, when he was still a computer engineering student. Even back them, despite lack of professional training in photography, his wildly creative photo manipulations would be a stand-out example of retouching. Erik Johansson’s work has a two-fold effect: on the one hand, it’s completely unbelievable and reality-defying, while on the other hand the high-skilled retouching makes it look almost real.
Redditor gyyp answers some questions you’ve probably never even had, like, “What do you get if you combine a duck and a horse?”, and gives you… a Dorse! Snake and horse? Snorse! Elephant and duck? Elephuck! “I like creating stupid animal species,” says gyyp, who has already bred more than 20 new animal species in Photoshop. Would you like to see one of these in reality?
When millions of men joined the armed forces, women had to replace them by taking jobs that previously had been held by men – such as bank teller, shoe salesperson or even aircraft mechanic. Woman started working in factories – this was called the “Rosie the Riveter” phenomenon.These photos had to lure young women into the factories by showing women workers as glamorous and even fashionable.
A matchstick is something so ordinary and simple that one could hardly imagine it could become an object of art. A Russian artist Stanislav Aristov however, unveils the artistic potential of matches in his his “Спички” (“matchsticks” in Russian) series. This 30-year-old photographer literally plays with fire by bending the matches into the desired shapes as they burn, then uses a macro lens and a studio flash to shoot the fire and the smoke around it.
Some artists get to the point when their usual medium or technique starts to limit their visions. This is exactly what happened to a Polish artist Michal Karcz who found that painting and the ordinary dark room photography techniques didn’t allow him to fully realize his potential. Luckily, the developing technology allowed him to combine the two with the help of some digital tools. Most of his work is “a journey to the places which don’t exist”. They’re places from Michal’s dreams, desires, imagination and fears. Are you ready to take a trip?
We have first introduced you to a Hungarian artist Sarolta Ban two years ago. Surprisingly, she was then working with a non-professional FinePix S5600 camera and claimed she had learned digital processing by herself. We decided to check with her again and see how her life has changed.
Hiding in the last row of a boring class in high school shouldn’t always be regarded as slacking. What once started of as fooling around with Photoshop and 3D Max in the back of AutoCAD class, has now developed into signature style that 30-year-old digital artist Michael Oswald describes as ‘photo manipulation on steroids’.
