At first glance, these layered photograph carvings could easily be mistaken for Photoshopped images instead of surreal sculptures. The prevalence of such programs shows just how easy it is to dismiss such work as digital manipulations. Yet that initial assumption doesn't take away the impressive quality of these layered photograph carvings.

Created by German artist Michel Lamoller, the layered photograph carvings involve the same location shot over a period of time. After the photos are printed, Lamoller physically layers and carves into them to reveal different scenes as well as intriguing dimensions. In a way, the images reflect the way the mind remembers. Fragments are often all that remain as the mind fills in the gaps.
