The Content Aware photo series centers around the similarly named Photoshop tool. When put into use, the content aware tool allows users to erase objects from images, replacing the now-blank space with content the program deems appropriate. Applying it to old family photos, the series becomes a set of surreal images that are at once familiar and utterly strange. It's almost as though they were captured in a haunted home.
Created by photographer Antonia Basler, the Content Aware photo series doesn't just stop at the replacement of imagery and objects. The Massachusetts-based artist uses the erased content on the following images, bringing the series full circle. Creepy and glitchy, the Content Aware series transcends typical family portraits.
