Spanish artist Nacho Ormaechea creates these unique images which concentrate on silhouettes of people as the focal point. What's so amazing about these artworks is that the artist then fills the shadows with bursting, eclectic collages, making the people in the images look somewhat translucent.

The artist, who currently resides and works in Paris, creates these digital collages by taking pictures of strangers on the street and then manipulating them beyond all recognition.

The inside-out images feature surreal collages such as a gumball machine in the place of a persons torso, a flower on an old man's back and a woman whose entire coat has been replaced with an aerial view of an apartment's winding staircase. These beautiful and mysterious images are as elusive as the strangers featured in the pictures themselves. Stats for Collage-Filled Silhouettes (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Chilly
