If you think you know what you are looking at in German photographer Martin Waldbauer’s images, look again! Nothing is quite what it seems in these digitally manipulated photos and photomontages. From a tightrope walking little girl reaching for the moon to the ghostly remnants of a female figure on a chalkboard, Waldbauer forces upon his viewers a perception of reality that doesn’t quite make sense.
Waldbauer’s biography reads, “Photography from the heart! Total amateur.” But surely, viewers can argue that this artist is much more than just an amateur. The creativity in his compositions is delightfully surprising. There is a playful confusion that draws the viewer in to ponder the authenticity of the scene.
