    This Artist Places His Human Subjects In Photos To Create Breathtaking Landscapes

    2005 • From the Shelton Hotel Looking East

    They say that artists depict a little bit of their life in their creations. But this photographer takes it a step further by artistically placing his subjects, and sometimes himself, in his photos to create breathtaking landscapes.

    We are talking about none other than Arno Rafael Minkkinen. A Finnish-­American photographer, educator, curator, and writer with over 100 solo shows and nearly 200 group exhibitions in galleries and museums worldwide.

    Minkkinen doesn’t create artificial illusions or pull any camera tricks to cheat the brain. He perfectly places his human subjects (sometimes himself) in photos to create breathtaking landscapes. He portrays his subjects as though they are part of the landscape and a crucial component of the photo.

    Let’s take a look at some of his amazing creations:

    House of Cards vs. Trump

    House of Cards vs. Trump

    Have you seen the latest season of House of Cards yet?

    If not, drop everything, go to Netflix and binge watch it.

    Okay, maybe not right now.

    Guess what, the mainstream media has been making many comparisons to the show. You can’t blame them. The current political climate is such that none of it seems real – but it is.

    Especially this new Season 5 of House of Cards.

    It feels very real and mirrors the current political climate.

    Tech Insider has created this awesome video documenting all the similarities between ‘House of Cards’ and Trump administration.

    Enjoy.
