Ultimate Stunt by Thomas Barbèy

Thomas has once again used his photography skills and imagination to come up with this very unusual balancing act.  Merging a photograph of a tightrope walker headed toward the viewer with a photograph looking up at a chandelier and ceiling, a confusing and unsettling image is born.

Family of Birds by Octavio Ocampo

This painting from Mexican artist Octavio Ocampo effectively uses negative space to create two distinct images that occupy the same space.  Do you see a tree and several birds or do you see the face of a woman?  You cannot view them both at the same time, but you can very easily flip-flop between the […]
