Vintage Photographs Altered Into Whimsical Fantasy Worlds
Vintage Photographs Are Digitally Transported Into Whimsical Fantasy Worlds by Jane Long
Australian artist Jane Long digitally manipulates vintage black and white photographs into surreal, whimsical worlds, where their subjects are given a second life in her series Dancing with Costica. The images she utilizes are photographs from WWI, which were capture by Romanian war photographer Costică Acsinte.
Although Long has received some flack from viewers about altering the meaning and the subjects’ true identity, she explains: “I wanted people to see these figures as real people, more than just an old photograph. Adding colour completely changes our perception of images.”
The stunning collection will be exhibted at Ballarat International Photo Biennale from August 22nd to Septmeber 20th.
