Digital manipulation was nothing but a dream back in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. This series of before and after images of pin-up girls by one of the most important glamour artists of the twentieth century, Gil Elvgren, shows us how easy it was to manipulate regular photos of full figured women into beautiful paintings of their seductive counterparts that our grandparents would see in magazines or hung on their walls.
New Hampshire artist, Cecilia Webber, has created a unique series of photographs of birds, flowers and butterflies that largely consist of, wait for it, naked people. A lot of planning and intensive digital manipulation went into producing such stunning pieces of art. Webber sees art as a means of heightening emotional experience through manipulation of imagery and form.
