One quick glance and you might probably say 'meh. shopped...'. Well, you got it wrong because Philippe Ramette does his self portraits with analogue effects resulting in jaw dropping, breathtaking, and gravity defying photographs.
Born in 1961, French artist Philippe Ramette defies gravity and reality with unique photographs that show him, standing or sitting on strange angles achieving a surreal feel in his compositions. Starting out as a sculptor, he built metal support structures to help hold him in these anti-gravity angles.
Philippe’s photographs were taken by his collaborator, Marc Domage. One of the photos above show an analogue camera set up on a tripod as Philippe’s team prepare their visual illusion. Here are some of their works:

The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1 Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
