Daniel Lee is not an expert in evolutionary theory, but he’s got ideas about where we came from. He certainly doesn’t try to pass them off as scientific truth; instead he makes his ideas into anything-but-primitive digital images intended as provocative art.
His series titled “Origin” depicts human evolution in 12 pictures, from the fish form (as Coelacanth) eventually transforming to reptiles, apes and humans.
It took three photo shoots-using three different cameras-before Lee began working in Photoshop. He started by photographing a dead bluefish he picked up from an Italian market in New York City and finished with a human male model in various crouching and squatting positions.
Don’t know about you guys, but his digital images seem pretty convincing to me. You can view larger images below.
P.S.: and you still eat fish after seeing this?
