Spliced: Two Photos Cleverly Become One

Spliced: Two Photos Cleverly Become One

COMMENTS
Photographer Stephen McMennamy stumbled upon the idea of combining photos on his daughter's birthday. He used a collage app to combine a photo of his daughter's face and a pink balloon. From that moment, his series of photos entitled "Combophotos" took off. Using the power of social media, he found a platform for his work on Instagram.
"There's an endless amount of creativity to be discovered on that app," he said. "I've always wanted a more pronounced voice when it comes to my own creativity and I feel like that app has given me the voice I'd been looking for."
His experimentation with combination and scale create pieces that tell a whole new, funny, interesting and whimsical story.
