Photo Manipulations – What Happens When Adults Dream

Dreamers have always lived among us. They are those, for whom reality is not enough and whose imagination is instantly producing some fancy ideas, building entire imaginary worlds and populating them with heroes and their opponents. In order to introduce such fantasies to other people, some dreamers used words and created fairy tales and legends, others used paints to show graphically what they dream about. The era of computers has presented all the dreamers with the new and powerful tools to shape their dreams into some tangible creations – images, illustrations, movies, etc.

Today Cruzine magazine features a collection of photomanipulation works to show its readers what modern dreamers are capable of. Initially photography was meant to show real objects as close to reality as possible. But over time, those who mastered traditional photography understood that they wanted something more, and by “more” they often understood an idea to modify and transform reality. That is how photomanipulation or manipulation of a photographic image started to develop as a separate and particular technique within the art of photography. We do not have here a clear explanation of reasons, explaining the desire for manipulating reality – maybe it is the eternal passion of an artist to create rather than to mimic, or an effort to overcome certain limits, which still exist for humans in reality, or, maybe, it is just nothing but a by-product of the impaired imagination, as some may say… Though the reason here does not matter for it is only the result which has value…

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
