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. Stats for Lens Free Photography Trending: Older & Mild
