When you have a vivid imagination, you can turn everyday objects into extraordinary images. This is precisely what Stephan Friedli and Ulrik Martin Larsen (aka PUTPUT) do in their artistic projects.

Recently I got to interview, Dennis Dunbar. Dennis is a composite artist and retoucher who says ‘Ever since 1991 I’ve been adding the Photoshop Magic to movie posters and images for ad campaigns. And I love working on cool images whether they’re for the latest blockbuster movie or a shot of a beautiful model or a product shot for a new ad campaign.’
