Looking at the images from Maya Nightingale 'Utopia '11' captures, it's hard to distinguish where the boundaries between reality and fantasy lie. With the presence of real models blurred between extraterrestrial influences, this photographer plays with photo manipulation to create an eye-catching juxtaposition.
This Maya Nightingale Utopia '11 project demonstrates this Ljubljana, Slovenia-based photographer's passions for fine arts, design and photography. While the worlds explored within these captures may seem futuristic, they appear real enough to represent some twisted form of reality.
Implications - The pairing of reality and fantasy continues to be a highly entertaining and lucrative one, as can be seen with the enormous popularity of recent movies like Twilight. As oppose to focusing solely on either the real world or sci-fi universe, companies should accept that consumers currently react most favorably to products and presentations that juxtapose the two.
