Billy Bonkers, a Norwegian photographer and artist based in Oslo, uses editing and photo manipulation techniques to create extraordinary and surreal images.

While some of the artist's techniques are more obvious, his more complex photographs will leave you bewildered at how these designs are achieved. Bonkers' work is a reminder of the lengths to which Photoshop is becoming an art form all its own, and the few limitations the program sets for artists in post-production is certainly having a large impact on photography.

Photo manipulation techniques are becoming more frequently used in ads as advertisers fight for attention of increasingly discerning consumers, and these images are a stunning example of such eye-catching work. Billy Bonkers does a great job at capitalizing on this form of photography. Stats for Surreal Scandinavian Snapshots Trending: Older & Popular
