Photographer Stephen McMennamy creates mind bending photographs just by using his camera phone! These photographs are a bit tough to process at first, but when you look for a second you can see they are actually two separate photos cleverly mashed together.
McMennamy clever photo combinations were a result of his fascination of Instagram. He stated that it’s not possible to not be inspired by the amount of great feeds on Instagram and he is humbled by the talent and creativity people have.
His aim with the Combophoto series is to tell a story by combining two very uninteresting photographs. And while the end results look like they have been through some complex process of photo editing it is the simplicity of method McMennamy used is itself astonishing. After he spends some time trying to find the right images to photograph or sets a simple studio in his garage to take the photos, he uses the photo editing apps on his phone to put the photographs together.
McMennamy said sometimes he spends weeks on one project and other times they just happen naturally. He also said that sometimes the photographs turn out to be fail and he has a separate account to show the photos that turn out not so well. The feed is called ‘combophotofail’ which also shows the behind the scene work that goes on to create such seemingly easy clever photo combinations.
