Alan Jaras Uses Transparent Objects Instead of a Real Lens

British photographer and artist Alan Jaras has pioneered a really unique photography technique that produces these amazing surreal pieces. They look like something from outer space to me.

It is very scientific, but here is a simplified explanation: Jaras uses transparent, clear objects in place of lenses and photographs through them. The images are captured directly onto 35mm film.

The technical description is in the excerpt below; if you know your photography, you should understand this a little more than me.

What you have to remember when viewing these images is that they have not been ‘fiddled with’ on the computer in anyway.
