Perhaps this image saturation is why surreal photo manipulation is particularly intriguing; smartphone cameras and social networking can’t hold a candle to an artist’s vivid imagination. One such visionary is veteran photographer Thomas Barbèy. Raised in Geneva before working for 15 years in Milan, this inspirational artist has spent more than 20 years perfecting his craft. Today he resides in Las Vegas and works exclusively in black and white, including sepia toning, masterfully transforming colorless photomontages into surrealistic fine art. 25 Beautiful Black & White Photos.

Italian artist Alberto Seveso was born in Milan, but is now working as a freelancer in Portoscuso, Sardinia-Italy. His passion for graphic art started when he was in a young age and he was really fascinated by the graphic of skate decks and the cover of music CD of metal bands. From this passion he started to create his artwork. In his series ‘A due colori’ Seveso experiments with high-speed photography while trying to find a new way to make something beautiful using ink and water. Loving to play with colors and tones, this series embodies the concept of stopping time through ink in the image. All images © Alberto Seveso | Via: mindsparklemag.

Neon Paint Brings Ordinary Portraits to Life. Light effects are just about as versatile as the imagination. The possibilities are endless. This is what Portuguese photographer Hid Saib discovered as he played around with some neon effects on people’s faces. Hid Saib used tiny flecks of vivid neon paint and decorated the faces as well as shoulders of the subjects in his portraits. The results are images that look like a starry night or celestial patterns all over the subject’s faces. Some even resemble an aurora borealis thanks to the colorful illumination of the neon paint that seem to be bursting.

One will observe that there is an irregularity to the intensity of each neon paint speck, all the more creating realism in every image. In other images, there is a more peaceful aura, with subjects appearing more serene with the strange glow. 40 Astounding Examples of Abstract Photography.
