50 Shocking, Eccentric Photography Collections

— January 11, 2009 — Unique
I don’t know about you, but something in each of these photography collections seems a bit strange to me. The subjects in these images are captured in illusory and unusual ways that make the viewer do a double-take.

The talented photographers whose work is featured below have mastered the art of grabbing their viewers’ attention. From photographing the rear ends of animals to portraits of individuals without torsos, there is no shortage of bizarre modern art in this series.
