Reddit user melonshade has taken some of the masterworks of Vincent Van Gogh and run them through some digital programs to create a different perspective with a little tilt-shift manipulation.

 

These alterations were inspired by image manipulations previously created by Serena Maylon on Artcyclopedia. You can also view Maylon’s altered works on Imgur.

Blake Little’s new book Preservation, contains sixty-eight photographs of his honey covered nudes. It certainly takes a lot of bees and no doubt some rigorous and sticky cleanup.

An excerpt from the Forward of Little’s book, written by Kenneth Lapatin, Associate Curator of Antiquities at the Getty Museum.

Since its invention in the 1800s, photography has been employed as a key tool of archaeology, capturing images of not only finds, but also the very processes of recovery. Its capacity to record the details of perishable objects – to preserve them – is evident in historical photographs of now degraded artifacts and of excavation sties, many substantially transformed by the very act of digging them and scarcely recognizable today. But today we are also well aware that photography can be far from objective; that it can be manipulated; that it can create something entirely new, original, and surprising.

Photographer Dean West takes weeks and up to a year creating these incredibly complex,Hockney-esque, hyper-stylised images from his “Painted Photographs” series. “To recreate the scene of the girl on the balcony (‘St. Pete Beach, 2016’), that was like seven days of driving to find the one space that felt as close to that memory as possible,” said West in a recent interview.
