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.

Hengki-Lee-Photography -1

Using simple black and white photography, Hengki Lee has found a way to tell a story with his silhouettes. The Indonesian self-taught photographer captures perfectly the outline of the people and animals in his shots without giving them an identity, almost to insist that you relate them to your own life or create a story for them. Using the moon to light many of his shots, the silhouettes are so crisp that they almost look like construction paper cut-outs glued to the photographs. [Read more...]

Surreal Humans Carved in Wood

Willy Verginer Sculpture 8

While they may look to be cast from resin, chiseled from stone or even 3D printed – these sculptures by Italian artist Willy Verginer are made of wood. His strikingly beautiful and dreamlike figures are covered with many textures; from smooth skin, to faceted rough surfaces and fascinating patterns in relief. His figures perform strange handstands, interact with woodland rabbits, and find themselves covered in delicate flowers – all giving the series a touch of the surreal. [Read more...]

Bizarre Portraits from a Patterned Dream

SONY DSC

If you combined the work of Salvador Dali with those Magic Eye books, you might have something close to the paintings of Canadian artist Sascha Braunig. Her works embody the unique duality of at once being highly beautiful and highly disturbing. They aren’t the type of things you want to see in your next dream or drug trip. [Read more...]
