As I look at the Flying and Floating photo series, I can't help but feel like I have just stepped into a bizarre dream in which the laws of physics don't apply and pretty much anything is possible.

Shot and masterly manipulated by Robert Overweg, the Flying and Floating photo series is just one example of why this artist considers himself a photographer in the virtual world. Although he claims that no editing or collage techniques were involved in any of these images, I can't wrap my head around how he came to shoot them.

According to Fast Co Design, the Flying and Floating photo series explores the 1940s- and '50s-era Empire Bay, which was the vast, fictional city in which Mafia II is set. Stats for Nonsensical Structure Photography Trending: Older & Chilly
