Which is an example of photo manipulation?
There are plenty of examples of photo manipulation art but here i would love to mention an artist whom i know since 2015 because i interviewed him for one art magazine i worked for in past. He is Achraf Baznani. He was born in Marrakesh in Morocco. On any given day you can find him behind the screen of his personal computer searching and experimenting new ideas in terms of photography and art. He was drawing a lot as a kid, and he participated in local competitions, he won many prizes, because his speed in the drawing and imagining new ideas, that contributes to the success of his artworks. The result impresses the jury. He experimented then caricature; a number of national newspapers in Morocco published his drawings. But He stopped drawing for study.
He started in photography since he was young, completely by chance, He got a EKTRA compact 250 for my birthday, which was intended to immortalize the good times. And finally, He was hooked. He then made several short films and documentaries, including “On”, “The Forgotten” and “Immigrant” for which he received several national and international awards, before once again opt for photography, taking advantage of his background in painting, but this time the strange and surreal photography. He is self-taught and he has no formal education in this field.
He is trying to bring some message to the viewer, be it a political advert or a social commentary or an emotional outcry. There is some level of abstraction, thus, in my works: the image is not an explicit example of the concept, but a general expression of the idea.
His artworks make healthy use of graphical symbols to represent ideas, movements, moods, anything and everything that he wants to include in the message of his artwork. He is self-taught and he has no formal education in photography.
