These unique and eye-catching photos below are created by French digital artist and photographer, Carl Redback. Carl, in his series called “Treebeard", photographs portraits of everyday people and then he digitally mix them with botanicals and other plant matters with the help of Photoshop.
In an annoying photo, razor sharp thorns painfully puncture a woman’s skin, while in an other one, roots and branches grow out of eye sockets on man’s face. The artist’s intention with these series is to make us think how much we have alienated from Mother- Nature and to remind us our connection to the natural world. A connection that thanks to modern society has been forgot very easily.
