These shocking and amusing images are part of the Jorge Miguel Photography collection called 'De cabeza'. Most of his work in this collection focuses on the head of course, but with eerie and unusual effects.

Beyond catching your attention with the surreal nature of the photographs, Miguel's work is simply stunning. One might suggest that these portraits could depict human anguish, suffered by chronic vulnerability or addiction.

Implications - The featured works of Jorge Miguel are definitely the work of a Photoshop genius. He depicts men with zippers that can rip open their flesh and women whose skin is caressed by razor-sharp barbed wire. Each image goes deeper than the surface picture. They have deep meaning that one is meant to ponder over.
