¿Cómo se le ocurren estas cosas?

Stephen Mcmennamy es un artista de Atlanta, Estados Unidos, que se dedica desde el 2012 a combinar fotos, para crear objetos y situaciones absolutamente surrealistas. Tiene 100 mil seguidores en Instagram, y bueno, si revisas las imágenes que seleccionamos y compartimos a continuación, ten por seguro que también te convertirás en uno.

El nombre que le dio a su trabajo es Combophotos. Y en definitiva, se trata de mezclar dos imágenes de elementos completamente distantes en su naturaleza, como son el helado de chocolate y una excavadora de construcción, pero que al ser manejadas con tonalidades similares (azul en este caso), se convierten en una ilusión en la que podrías llegar a creer.

«Es sólo mirar alrededor y ver lo que se podría hacer a las cosas del mundo con un ajuste interesante o un buen contraste, una vez combinados. Es sólo imaginación».

– McMennamy. –

Así, le ha puesto lápices en vez de piernas a una sofisticada mujer. Ha colocado una colifor en el lugar de la cabeza de un poodle. Y ha convertido la punta de una montaña, en un helado. Algunas mezclas son hermosas. Otras dan un poco de hambre. Unas son bastante tétricas. Y bueno, todas, absolutamente todas, son muy confusas.

trumpet vine + traffic cones this one took a little more time than usual. when I got the idea in my head, I knew nothing about trumpet vines, now I think I might know way more than necessary. if you're interested, I can direct you to pretty much all the places they're growing around Atlanta. when this idea started several months ago, I didn't actually know what I was looking for. I didn't know what those orange flowers were called, where I'd seen them before, where they grow?… I just knew what it looked like in my head. anyway, once I made a conscious effort to try and make this thing happen all I could do was look around. for the longest time I saw nothing… and then suddenly I spotted a speck of orange blooming in some bushes on a busy road by my house. like a man possessed, I went back with some pruning shears and participated in a real life game of Frogger. I thought I'd found a needle in the haystack… only to find out that they had just started coming into bloom. so here we are, peak season and they're seemingly everywhere. just a lesson in patience and maybe a little less so, a lesson in persistence. for what it's worth, the traffic cones were easy to find. I borrowed them from a high end organic grocery store in town (specializing in foods) regardless, the cones were returned the following day. side note on the shot of the cones, I locked two tripods together. one right side up and the other upside down, the cones went on the poles of the upside down tripod (which was my grandfathers old tripod circa… old). outtakes on @combophotofail. #combophoto #trumpetvines
