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.

Though the winter blues are normal, not all Oregonians are sick of the snow.
