  4. What role does color play in these images?
    They’re mostly dark and grungy, and most are blended so it looks a little blurry in the skies and things so the pictures are easier to combine.

    What are the different looks of these photos?
    It is mainly photos mashed together, in some there are huge animals with a small kid, or a girl on the swings super high up in the air, etc.

    How do themes of childhood and youth play into these images?
    It is basically showing that you need to use your imagination, or how kids may view these kinds of animals.

    What ideas could you take from these and put into your own work?
    Combining multiple images into 1 and photoshopping to make it look like a completely new photo. This could look very nice!

  6. The colors show that the world is getting destroyed then there is some hope inside. With the whole dark aspects which is the bad and the colorful bright colors as the good.

    The different looks are the animals in a habitat that is getting destroyed and a the kids in the city and the trees getting destroyed into cities that is overall destroying the world.

    The childhood and youth plays a role by showing how he took every photo i feel like.

    I feel like a can start to have more of an imagination when i take photos to make a more unique and cool photo, like what the photographer did here.

  9. the color in these images all seem slightly blurry but their mostly low tones and the blends of colors he uses i really like, the light sources all seem to be more radiant than direct as well. These images all appear somewhat drawn but at the same time not too much that i doubt they’re real, the hazy light probably lends to that but some feel more fabricated then others. the themes of childhood heavily play into this i believe because it is a fantasy world and we’re closest to our fantasies when we’re children, we’re more likely to pretend and picture things in the dramatic and artistic way that the photographer is. This would give me more ideas if i had more Photoshop skills and could even remake something like that but it does make me want to think more about each image and step up my effort
