When we think of “no Photoshop,” most of us imagine photos that haven’t been edited at all, with all their flaws and imperfections. But how about not using Photoshop at all, but still ending up with altered images? This is what artist Kensuke Koike does. So to say, he edits photos in real life: and the resulting images are brilliant.
Instead of altering digital photos in the editing program, Koike uses physical, printed images. He tears them, cuts them and pokes holes in them. He rearranges the pieces, ending up with something completely different from the original image. The results are sometimes surreal, and often hilarious. Occasionally, all it takes is a single tiny change to change the concept of the photo entirely. But what all his works have in common is that they’re incredibly creative.
Koike is an artist born in Nagoya, Japan. He has lived and studied in the USA and Italy and he’s had his work exhibited all over the world. Make sure to follow him on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube to keep updated about his creative work.
