There’s some pretty interesting and bizarre stock photography floating around the Internets and we’ve also undoubtedly seen some pretty clever uses for it. But, The Stock Photobomber (Matt Vescovo) may have just stole the show with his tongue in cheek series of Photoshopped stock images.
After painstakingly looking at about 845,742,923,012 stock photos during his 20-year long career as an art director in advertising, he’s come up with a way to make looking at boring, unrealistic stock images a whole lot more fun.
“I find that when I look at stock photos, I experience the same uncomfortable feeling I have when my bank teller asks me with a forced smile, how my morning is going or when I eat “Chick’n” or see an interview with Tom Cruise. It’s not simply that my teller’s greeting, the vegan meat substitute and the celebrity scientologist are fake, it’s how hard they pretend that they’re not…”
Using stock photos sourced from various online outlets, Vescovo uses a vintage copy of “Photoshop 6.0 and my own raw emotion,” to ‘shop himself into whatever kind of “fun” is being in the photos. The renditions, which really speak for themselves, are too ingenious not to share. Have a look, below, and be sure to swing by his website and Twitter for even more entertainment. Enjoy!
