The surreal digital photography of Cal Redback — weird and disturbingly beautiful.
Cal Redback, a French photographer from Paris is a digital artist, who can transform a normal portrait into surreal and disturbingly beautiful image. His creativity and imagination, enhanced by photoshop manipulation, does all the tricks. The insanely weird looking images below are just some of his creations. What we like most are the series of human faces that morphed into nature inspired theme — a fusion of decaying face and growing plants.
My first idea was to make a double exposition as we used to see, but when I started to blend them on Photoshop, I realized that I could be a bit more creative and realistic. So after many hours (and a bit more) here they are.
The collection of ‘treebeards’ sees the union of the human face and plant life, with half or parts of the features removed and replaced by the wild growth of greenery. A singular image titled ‘herbraiser’ continues the theme with a disturbingly realistic impression of a female face growing thorns in the same way a bouquet of roses she holds would. overall, the metamorphosis of mortal characteristics into alternate botanical life forms unite two categories of existence into one, redefining the term ‘human nature’ as a seemingly new species of hybrid creatures.
