Eli Craven uses a remarkably ingenious technique to elevate existing forms of art through his folded photos. By folding the images he is able to create entirely different artwork that transcends the original pieces through the small manipulations.
One of my favorite folded photos is the one with the woman holding the blanket up to her face. The small fold in the image adds an entirely different element to the photograph, and what's so amazing is that these small changes can completely redefine the entire theme; there's now an air of playfulness and mysticism.
Along with the theme-changing photographs there are also a plethora of surreal creations that bend reality to a point where it's recognizable enough to stimulate conscious wonder. Craven's techniques are definitely an inspirational idea that will promote even more brilliant creations.
