    Fantastic take on the renaissance rendering without being mundane. Original and haunting! Love it.

  • yes very haunting

  • I love these, especially the 3rd from the top.

  • Give me a feeling anxiety.

  • sr

    geez… these are amazing

  • classical trash

  • amazing. really nails it.

  • Gene

    These feel very strange and dark. It has a Bacon-esque style to it. And the ‘peeling’ effect is what makes it pop out!

    • ALEX IKHIDE

      OMG!!!! that’s exactly what i thought as well as soon as i saw these!! its sort of a re-imagining of francis bacon’s style and form of work

  • They are all amazing but I really love the fourth one.

  • Eerie and beautiful.

  • heather

Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored.
