Mind Melting Photo Manipulations (16 pics)

It's hard to distinguish what's real and what's not in Josh Sommers' world. The California-based artist/photographer creates unbelievably surreal scenes that will make your brain melt…

“I believe that as artists we all have a certain pool of creative energy that we draw from,” says Sommers. “For me, I have found that it does not matter what I do with that energy – whether it is drawing, painting, building picture frames, writing music, taking photos, designing corporate branding, writing software, designing logos or creating digital composites – it all comes from the same place – and it doesn't matter how I use it, it only matters that I do use it.

“In my life there have been periods where I was not creative, and in hind sight, those were some of the toughest times in my life. Now I know that I cannot be happy in life unless I am being creative, and so that is why I am an artist.”
