Here did it all start.
I was teaching a Adobe Photoshop course and I wanted the students to learn blending modes and color in a fun way.One day I found a bunch of black and white images and thought this would be the answer to my quest.
So I stared colouring, masking and playing with the image. Making a serious photograph of a goose stepping soldier into a fun half waterbird half soldier.
This is one of the first images I created back in 2015.
The inspiration for this image is rather obvious isn’t it? The Anthropomorphic Cabinetof Salvador Dalí, he used the drawers as a symbol of mystery but also sexuality.
My vision here was to portray a woman with all her secrets she wants to keep hidden. Chancing the color of the grass from green to purple was a conscious decision as I wanted the picture to have something mysterious.
How would you portray this topic? Would you have chosen an other color? What do you see in the image?
