The photographs are so gorgeous and the colors are surreal to the point where I thought these were 3D renderings and not photographs. Some of them have some image editing involved but I still think they look amazing. You can view more of his work on his official website.

Such idea is so simple yet hasn’t probably occurred to anyone else before, what Angelica ...
