At first glance, the incongruity of the subjects in Lyubomir Sergeev’s work will elicit a smile. The thing is, the longer you look at his work, the more you understand the actual depth and meaning behind it. Each detail of this Bulgarian artist’s work is carefully thought out, making the digitally enhanced images pop out and grab the viewer by the eye. The picture above shows what appears to be a model in a skimpy red outfit holding a hamper and a dog on a leash. It’s only later when I realize that it’s supposed to be a parody of the popular children’s fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
