Famous Buildings Floating on Rocky Planets

Giuseppe Lo Schiavo Levitation 2

“To be a surrealist means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been” said the famous surrealist Renè Magritte. That lofty aim is the ideal of contemporary Italian aritst Giuseppe Lo Schiavo and the root of his new series called Levitation. The collection of photo manipulations sees a Little Prince-esque world of historical landmarks – honorable mentions on many a ‘7 Wonders’ list – which Lo Schiavo has photographed and placed atop floating rocky worlds which rise above mysterious empty seascapes.

Four-Eyed Cats are Creepy… Like Real Cats

Casey Weldon 4 Eyed Cats 3

Without even trying, cats can be really creepy at times. Well actually, maybe they are trying. They run maniacally around the house for seemingly no reason; they hide in boxes for us to find them; and most disconcertingly, they stare at us with those big, glowing, curious eyes. Artist Casey Weldon knows this so he’s lately been creating cat paintings with double the creepiness – cats with four eyes.

Reality Remixed: Photography by Bence Bakonyi

Bence Bakonyi Photography 2

Young and talented, Hungarian photographer Bence Bakonyi is making a name for himself through strikingly crisp and realistic images with a surreal twist. His style emphasizes locations carefully chosen for their bright and uniform color palettes. In his series Transform, he takes this concept to the limit, matching his subjects clothing perfectly to the hues and shapes of the world that surrounds them. Often, objects in the scene are frozen in motion or suspended; impossibly floating in center stage. His works give one the feeling they are witnessing the normal world with heightened senses – catching the small moments and tiny details that create uniqueness and beauty.

Stellar Photo Manipulations the Old Fashioned Way

Photo Manipulations by Thomas Barbey 1

Photo manipulations have been a mainstay of photography, even before the advent of Photoshop, but with the ubiquitous use of program by everyone and their brother, the world has become flooded with seriously questionable work. Luckily the other day we ran across the work of Thomas Barbéy to give us hope. His pieces bring back a classic surreal quality, perhaps because he does this the old fashioned way – with carefully planned film based photographs, selection of negatives and maybe even a bit of airbrushing.
