Hilarious Non-Photoshopped Upside-Down Self Portraits


In his photography work, UK-based artist Caulton Morris spins the world in all kinds of directions. In particular, Upside is a series in which the artist precariously balances on his head in the most unexpected places. From city streets to fields to even submerged inside a toilet, his series of self-portraits feature a headstand with a body wobbling through the air.

Everything about this project is playful and entertaining, and the artist clearly has a great sense of humor! Morris takes his viewers on a journey through his world, in which we get to explore the renovations of his sister and brother-in-law’s new place, the sofa of a friend in Antwerp, and the friendships that he made during his trip through India.

Morris describes each photograph as another of his 10 second self-timer challenges. What you see in the final images is completely real and, incredibly, he doesn’t use Photoshop or any computer tricks to capture these entertaining moments.

Using a variety of denominations, Tanu creates intricate structures that range in shape and size. Often, he’ll first build a strong base using staggered coins.
