Pop Faces by Joshua Scott. Iconic Status from a Different Angle

Perhaps, you have heard about the interesting series ‘Pop Faces’ by Joshua Scott and now you have great opportunity to check it out in today’s post dedicated to the art of this author. The most curious fact about these works of art is that they depict photos of well-known people in the unusual way. Each work is the photo of the crumpled photo of the iconic person. You can say that there is nothing special in such works and I will argue in favor of their originality, ‘cause they offer you to look at the famous people from a different perspective. What can be more interesting than to see the well-known things or people in the new light? In this collection you will find photos of a number of stars that you know quite well. Try to guess who they are.

Frightening Proximity of the Past – WWII Photo Collages by Sergey Larenkov

Sergey Larenkov is a talented Russian photographer that took some old WWII pictures and combined them with perspective-matching photos that were taken nowadays. This simple technique brings awesome results by creating original time portals that help us to see the World War II from the different angle. Here you’ll see some absolutely legendary photos that are contextually mixed up with the present days captured in one single composition. At first it looks like WWII ghosts appeared at the streets of St. Petersburg, Vienna, Berlin and other cities. But if we take a closer look we can see that these photos are bringing us to another reality without any time limits and those are not ghosts. Btw, you can visit Sergey Larenkov’s livejournal page.
