The rise of digital photography and photo editing technology has gone a long way in the creative industry today. Photo manipulated artworks are not only a product of creative editing techniques but as well as the rare skill behind a photographer’s eye. When both essential skills are combined, amazing artworks are created that even man’s craziest dreams are put into reality.
One amazing artist that combined his skills in photography and digital manipulation to create an amazing project is Laurent Chéhère. Influenced by the 1956 short French children’s film Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon), Chéhère created a series of imaginative photo manipulations of flying houses featuring his shots over Paris. The work will be exhibited at Galerie Paris-Beijing in Paris from Oct. 25 to Dec. 8, 2012. Each piece is mind-blowing and considered by most as the definition of dreams and fantasy. The presence of color palette of greys, blues and browns adds to the dreamy atmosphere of each photos.
Aside from being a photographer based in Paris, Laurent Chéhère have also worked as an art director and film maker. Check out more of his awesome works on his official website.
