Mud Makes Man Appear From Nowhere
Are you asking yourself how did the photographer achieve this strange, sculpture-like illusion? Well, 31 year old Alejandro Maestre Gasteazi has created an incredibly interesting photographic series about the struggle of an artist. These pictures remind me of the Hollywood flick Hollow Man. Gasteazi covered his friend Julián with the mixture of blue paint and mud. After clicking Julián at various stages, he later Photoshoped the pictures. Gasteazi cut around his subject's body to make him appear like a floating sculpture.
Gasteazi studied photography at the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (CITM), where he worked as lighting teacher. He has been teaching for more than 10 years at several schools in Barcelona.
