96 Illustrations Of Bizarre Artography

From Visceral Shocktography to Surrealist Makeup

— September 17, 2009 — Fashion
Photographers often find a way to imprint an image permanently in our head through unusual or bizarre techniques. Greatly influenced by surrealism, pop art and impressionism, these artists below have created lasting digital canvases. From bloody nudetography to illusory shocktography and morbid classroom editorials, check out this cluster full of bizarre wonders.

Implications - Today's consumer is desensitized, with humor, media and the general nature of entertainment becoming increasingly crude. Thus, there is a demand for much more daring products in all facets of life. This effects the design industry, fashion industry, advertising industry and more, calling for an injection of unconventional, squeamish elements into products and services.
