Turkish-based artist Erkin Demir creates intriguing double exposure portraits wherein the human subject has been blended with nature and architectural forms.

The blending adds a layer of complexity to what would otherwise be a basic portrait. Viewers will be immediately captivated by how the disparate shapes and arrangements come together, so smoothly and seamlessly, to create a visually intricate composition.

Beyond the increase of depth and dimension, the portraits also reveal subtle details that become more pronounced the longer the viewer looks at them. Overall, Demir's work offers us a dazzling way to enjoy more than one photograph. There is a sense of harmony in each image that suggests perhaps humanity can be at one with other elements.
