The images produced by German artist Marlon Kowalski are interestingly staged. Using a projector, Kowalski overlays images onto the surfaces that he is photographing.

From walls to trees to clothes hanging on a line, the surfaces give the projected images a unique texture and appearance. The images containing projections on trees are my personal favorite, as the textures that are visible give the photographs a distinct touch of flair.

Implications - But it's still hard to ignore the versatility displayed in this collection of images. Marlon Kowalski does what some traditionalist photographers won't, and that is combine his natural and honed skill for photography with advancements made in modern technology. By showing a willingness to explore previously uncharted waters in the photography world, Kowalski has created his own specific aesthetic.
