Taking a whole new approach to portrait photography, commercial photographer Wes Naman created a new series of funny portraits that is unlike anything you've ever seen. His technique of turning people into freakish creatures is surprisingly simple and super fast to recreate.

Having come across the technique while wrapping presents, the Albuquerque-based Naman decided to capitalize on the technique to create his contortionist-like funny portrait series 'Scotch Tape'.

Using family members and family for his silly series and a handful of office supplies like scotch tape and scissors, the series transforms regular-looking people into both horrifying and hilarious-looking creators.

Stretching skin in the weirdest ways and rearranging features by pushing and pulling them into unnatural directions, the final results of the 'Scotch Tape' series are almost zombie-esque and freaky. Stats for Hilarious Contortionist Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
