World of Photoshop by Caras Ionut

The Romania-based photographer describes himself as a ‘photo mechanic’ and has created the series of mindboggling pictures using the computer program.

Often using a normal picture as a starting point, Ionut mixes the ordinary with the extraordinary changing a simple scene of a girl fishing by a lake into a startling image of the girl riding on top of a huge fish.

A stag’s antlers have been transformed into a pair of trees – complete with birds flying out of the branches and a deer sits comfortably on a battered sofa in the middle of a muddy wasteland.

Animals and humans interact in the pictures with one little girl taking an elephant for a walk by the trunk and another riding on the back of an ostrich in a custom-made saddle with reigns.

Ionut describes his work as a manifestation of dreams and says he takes his inspiration from the colours of autumn and winter.

As well as working as a professional photographer and retoucher, he offers courses and tutorials to people that want to learn how to digitally manipulate photographs.
