Photo manipulation Manipulating one or more pictures to create something new Creating a small story using characters and scenery by photographing everyday objects and editing them. Photoshopping myself onto a mythical creatures (i.e. unicorn) Book art – cutting into books to create a scenery then adding a picture of a person Creating surreal images by distorting the ordinary
Distorting the ordinary Examples
Kyles idea of involving nature in his pictures appeals to me in a sense that the normality and serenity combined with the bizarreness of your creation would suit this project well. Something natural united with something unnatural emphasizes the photo manipulation idea
Sue Blackwell Sue Blackwell an English artist who creates sculptures out of books using their pages by cutting them up and creating figures. Her style appeals to me because she creates physical surrealism, which then could have manipulation added to it to create something different I would like to use her technique then manipulate the photo by either creating a scenery or adding a character into the scenery created.
