Disconcerting Digitally Manipulated Photos That Echo Famous Paintings

It’s interesting, albeit not perhaps surprising, how the use of heavy-handed Photoshopping techniques as an artistic tool is generally confined to ostensibly digital images, art that draws attention to its own artifice. These pictures by Hungarian artist Flóra Borsi, which we came cross via Dangerous Minds, are decidedly different: they twist and contort the faces and bodies of models into shapes that match those of famous paintings. Borsi’s work is all the more disconcerting because it’s so naturalistic — you find yourself doing a double take at the people on display, especially as they’re posed right next to the paintings from which they’ve been taken.
