These are absolutely amazing: JF Rauzier Hyperphotos.

Jean-François Rauzier was immediately captivated by numerical photography when it penetrated the professional market 15 years ago. He has been exploring the multiple opportunities offered by computer’s retouching since then, turning himself into a “virtual” painter.

In 2002, he created the “Hyperphoto”, a concept which enables him to deal with the impossible: to combine both infinitely big and infinitely small things in one same image, out of time.

To simulate the illusion of reality, Jean-François Rauzier first had to cope with all the inherent limits inherent of the photographic and technological equipment.

He found his way by juxtaposing, duplicating, twisting images with Photoshop, making it possible for him to reproduce human vision more accurately. This way, he generated a genuine numerical puzzle, in which the pieces, cut out, “drawn again”, come up along on top of the imagination of the artist.

Click Portfolio, choose a category, then choose a photo. Go fullscreen, then click and click and click. If you have time for only one, choose Quotidiens - Grand Central.

    I found Bill & Monica facing forward at one of the railings -- with Barack Obama making a phone call in a restaurant behind them.

    To the left on the level Obama's on the name of the section of NYC I grew up in is on one of the archways. That's because it's a stop on the LIRR I guess. Actually the RR station in that town is famous for the "apathy" of the residents in the adjacent apartments for witnessing a murder in the station and doing nothing.
