Photographer Re-Imagines Clouds as Magical Landscapes


Torino-based photographer Elio Pallard whimsically re-imagines clouds as a variety of wondrous landscapes in his series titled Playing with Clouds. The photographer offers new perspectives with his manipulated cloudscapes that transform the cotton ball-like puffs in the sky into magical mountains, fluffy waves, and billowing blankets of snow.

By placing silhouettes of adventurous (usually out-of-place) figures into each cloud portrait, Pallard creates clever scenes that tap into his imagination. He uses the shape and tone of clouds to replicate other topographical textures in the world. The warmth of the sun’s light also adds a transformative quality to the creative images, allowing the photographer to play with the idea of heat. Whether it’s mimicking the hot Saharan sand dunes, where nomads and camels travel for ages across, or the fiery blast of a spaceship exiting Earth’s atmosphere.

Using subtle color changes and countless passes of the satin stitch, Giordano mimics the look of fur on hopping rabbits, sleepy squirrels, and scurrying mice.
