Sweetly Surreal Photo Manipulations by Ceslovas Cesnakevicius


Lithuania-based artist Ceslovas Cesnakevicius has created a whimsical set of photo manipulations that ride that fine line between art and photography. It may be hard to believe but all of his images start with photos. The 35-year-old began taking pictures over ten years ago and he claims that he actually got into photography so that he could create these surreal photo manipulations.

Each of his works have that light and lovely feeling about them. Perhaps it’s because he often uses images of clouds or the moon that makes us remember that there’s life beyond our little world.

Though we may not know it, to Cesnakevicius, each photo is deeply personal. As he tells us, “Each of my work has its own little story. Generally speaking, my images come depending on my experiences, my impressions and a set of other things I go through as a person and a human being.”
