It’s A Bird, It’s A Dog, It’s BOTH! How Dirds Are the Greatest Things in the History of Photoshop

Dirds 1

If you have always wanted a dog, but hated the fact that they can’t fly, or wanted a bird that can wag its tail, then we have just the thing for you: dirds! Dirds, also known as birddogs, are an amusing new species so high in demand that you can’t find them at pet stores anywhere! The dog head/bird body variety offers that loyal, confidant aspect that you want in a dog and there are no front paws in the way of easy belly rub access. You can live out your pirate dreams with one of these bad boys on your shoulder. Be careful with which secrets you share with the parrot head/dog body variety because they just might let them slip.

Wednesday 11.20.2013 , Posted by

1 aged Bob Marley

When a person dies young, we always wonder what they could have been, how the world would have been different if they were still alive, and what they would look like if they grew to an old age. Sachs Media attempts to answer these questions for some of the greatest rock musicians of all time. Was it their short lives that made their impact on the world so powerful or could they have done more if they had more time? Partnering with photomanipulation company Phojoe the media company created age progressions to show what rock legends Bob Marley, John Lennon, Dennis Wilson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, ‘Mama’ Cass Elliot, Keith Moon, Bobby Darin, Karen Carpenter, Kurt Cobain, and Elvis would look like if they were alive today. Then they asked expert musicologists Dr. Reebee Garofalo and Elijah Wald to give their best insights as to what these stars might have accomplished if given the time. [Read more...]

Make Like a Tree and Leaf! The Tree People by Marko Prelic

Tree People 8

I couldn’t help the cheap joke in the title, but these Photoshopped images from serbian photographer Marko Prelic are truly tasteful… if not a bit whimsical too. In each, we see a normal human figure, photographed in black and white, complete with a tree for their head. This unusual vision could have a number of symbolically tree-based meanings.

Best of Both Worlds: 18 Gorgeous Examples of Half Underwater/ Half Surface Photography

Thursday 09.12.2013 , Posted by

1-Sean Davey

Ever since I was 5 years old, I have wondered what it would be like to be a mermaid- not the mockumentary morbid webbed-hand kind, but a Disney Princess daughter of Triton type like Ariel. The first time I saw it in the theaters, I cried at the end of The Little Mermaid and it gave me a lot of anxiety, fearing that I might grow up and fall in love with a Merman and be forced to choose between moving to the ocean with him- trading in my legs for fins and leaving my family behind on land- or losing my true love. Luckily I never found myself in that situation, but I have residually been obsessed with the ocean and its creatures. What an amazing, magical world, most of which remains as much of a mystery to us as outer space. This collection features works that are amphibious, catching a glimpse of the world underwater and above the surface at the same time. [Read more...]

Is That a Dinosaur Over That Hill? A Photographer’s Son Stars in Fantastic Adventures

Thursday 08.08.2013 , Posted by

David Niles Nates Adventure 1

See over that hill there? If you go far enough, there are Dinosaurs! That seems to be the message behind David Niles’ photo series called Nate’s Adventures. It’s a lot like Calvin and Hobbes photographed with a bellows camera and printed as a daguerreotype… the vintage look imagines a Land of the Lost style world full of UFOs, gigantic vegetables, trips to the moon and, yes, dinosaurs. It’s just the kind of thing to make our imaginations run wild with fantastic dreams we haven’t had since being children. [Read more...]

Hugh Kretschmer photo manipulations 1

Strap on those feet and let’s go trekking! What at first seems impossible, quickly becomes easy in Hugh Kretschmer’s bizarre photo manipulations. Feet grow laces like a pair of hiking boots, as do a pair of fist like boxing gloves; star shaped cookies become throwing stars, deeply embedded in a paper target; and auto mechanics become tools just like everything else hanging from the wall.
