I think that in the photographer had to take two separate photos and merged them together in one photo. I am not sure what moods I get from these photos. I could do something similar to these photos but I think that they wouldn’t look as good.

  10. These photos make the world seem so small yet so large, and that’s what makes these images so successful.

    I think they were able to create these images by photographing a subject and Photoshopping them into another surreal photo.

    What these photos give me is a sense of smallness.

    What I could do is use surrealistic photos and Photoshop subjects into them somehow.

  12. What makes these images so successful is how he took these as portraits and made them into something different that people haven’t seen before. He was able to create these images by taking a picture of himself them of what he wants to be in and then he used photoshop to transport him from one picture to the other one. The moods i’m getting from these images are different like i feel like hes lonely and puts a lot of time into his work and he feels like someone else in his own body. Something I could do that’s similar to these photos are taking self portraits then transporting me from one picture to another using photoshop.
