Photo manipulator Ted Chin stitches together surreal scenes and imaginative worlds that look like they belong in a fantasy story. Using photos that he or his friends have taken, the San Francisco-based creative masterfully combines different elements to create cohesive images that appear impressively realistic.
Many of his photo manipulations were inspired by dreams, myths, or fantasy tales like Lord of the Rings. Dragons and giant jellyfish soar through the air above the heads of tiny adventurers who are traveling to faraway lands. Chin explores a variety of extraordinary environments, from underwater realms to candy-pink mountains to forests haunted by unicorns. Both creative and expertly crafted, these photo manipulations will stir the imagination of any viewer.
