A Before and After Look at the Magic of a Photoshop Artist


Photographer and visual artist Antti Karppinen has been reimagining photos using Photoshop for over 23 years now. Here’s a before-and-after look at how Karppinen is able to take plain portraits (shot in studios, garages, and outdoors) and turn them into dreamlike images.

“I have been using a motto ‘imagine anything’ to describe my work since I’m able to create pretty much anything I see in my mind or whatever I need to create,” Karppinen says. “Photography is always the starting point so I feel that I’m definitely also a photographer, but then the creative retoucher kicks in and I’m able to turn those images into something else.”
