These wild images are actually some of the tamer ones from contemporary photographer Brian Walker's web site titled â€œLick the Sunâ€. Walker takes a satirical look at current fashion trends and extremes and creates these surreal images melding elements of real women with added mannequin bits and some very good Photoshopping to make a, â€œseamless illustration between reality and make believe.â€
The images shown here are cleverly titled: â€œFifty Lashesâ€, â€œStep Fourâ€, â€œNoodle Philosophyâ€, â€œTuesday Drawâ€, â€Does my Hair Look Big in This?â€, â€œBirdoned by the Seaâ€, â€œRead the Card Firstâ€, â€œRedrumâ€, â€œBatteries Includedâ€.
As Walker says, â€œI like the visual language of my images to appear hyper real, as if they could exist but a second take reveals something amiss or askew. The perfection of a single detail or the impossibility between elements is what I continue to find fascinating.â€
