The photo collage photography of Vik Muniz is something full of depth and complexity. Each image is made up of a ton of vintage photos that have been meticulously arranged in order to portray a larger image. The resulting artworks are then photographed, yet the original pieces are huge. One of the artworks is over eight feet tall.

What makes these images even more special is that they are arranged not only by color, but by subject matter as well. For instance, one of the photo collage photography pieces depicts a portrait of a baby. That baby is made up of images of babies. Interestingly, Muniz also uses the back of the old photographs when necessary.
