Strange Ghostly Figures in Motion by Jon Jacobsen

Jon Jacobsen creates unsettling manipulations of the human body in his surreal photographic portraits. He uses animated GIFs to bring his ghoulish subjects to life, further exaggerating their pained expressions. His latest project “Insula” is a collaboration with Colombian designer Daniel Ramos Obregón, which explores how technology has become an extension of ourselves. The series features twisted and contorted bodies that appear to have electricity passing through them.
