Christophe Gilbert is a Belgian photographer who works within the field of visual art.

This wonderful portfolio of really beautiful images centered on optical illusions is truly amazing, and we can fully appreciate that by examining the first photo in the gallery. It shows a woman with long, flowing hair that gives the illusion of a herd of running horses.

I think Gilbert's modern illusion photography is absolutely phenomenal.

Implications - Society is so saturated with advertising images that consumers have become desensitized to them over time. These consumers are now affected by advertisements which boast surreal or shocking imagery, making them memorable. Companies can incorporate these elements into their marketing campaigns to gain attention from potential consumer groups.
