Bizarre Portraits Showing Parents and Kids with Swapped Heads

Advertising photographer Paul Ripke‘s project “Man Babies” features portraits of parents with their children… with their heads swapped. Ripke enlisted the help of two professional Photoshoppin’ friends, and says that the photographs were purely for fun and to test the limits of Photoshop.

You can find more photographs from this series over on Ripke’s website.

    I think this is an accurate yet artistic way of showing the maturity level of some parents. :)

    Creepy, disturbing crap.

    Why? Do we only have to post nice comments only? People with taste have a voice too.

    Now THIS is creepy, not the baby-in-adult-clothes like the other day.

    Awesome, though.

    People who enjoy / “like ” this are delusional troubled humans. If in fact they are parents, I worry, very much, about the welfare of their children. Some peole should not breed, these are those people.

    Hilarious!  They’re so wrong.  Somethingawful.com — they have stuff like this in their Photoshop Phriday contests. It seems like they’ve done this there before, too.

    Creepy and disturbing are valid comments. Saying it’s crap adds little to the discussion. It’s not necessary to be nice, but being polite is respectful to both the artist and everyone on this forum.
