These are the latest amazing digitally manipulated photographs created by Jim Kazanjian. He works just on pictures found in Internet. It's crazy because Kazanjian has a collection of over 25 thousand high resolution photos to work with. He usually uses around 30 pictures to make one of his pieces but can be different for each one.

Jim Kazanjian tells us about his work;
"On the more complex pieces I’ve used more. I generally sample sections from photographs I find interesting and use them as building blocks. I assemble these parts together in Photoshop to create a nonexistent space that mimics a photograph. I do not use a camera at any stage in this process.
I’ve focused on photography as a medium because of the cultural misunderstanding that it has a kind of built-in objectivity. This allows me to set up a visual tension within my work, to make it resonate and lure the viewer further inside. My current body of work is inspired in large part by the literature of H.P. Lovecraft and other ‘weird’ fiction writers. I am intrigued with the narrative archetypes they utilize to de-familiarize the familiar. I like to use those devices as a foundation to build upon and generate entry points for my images.”
