Upside-Down Photos of Human Faces That Look Like Aliens

Upside-Down Photos of Human Faces That Look Like Aliens

“Alienation” is a wonderfully bizarre photo series by photographer Anelia Loubser that transforms ordinary human faces into alien-like faces simply by flipping the portraits vertically.

“Alienation” is a collection of portraits that challenges the viewer by using creative tactics based on the concept, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change” – Wayne Dyer.

Be introduced to the alienated being inside us all, disconcerting beauty emerges. The work is on the one hand strangely aesthetic, on the other hand mysteriously eerie.

“Long Ma” is a 46-ton fire-breathing kinetic sculpture of a horse-dragon by French artist François Delarozière and his art group La Machine. The nearly 40-foot-tall sculpture features articulating limbs, an expressive face, and the ability to “breathe” plumes of fire and smoke. The sculpture recently debuted in Nantes, France, and is destined for China, where it will be presented as a gift to mark the upcoming 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China.
