Artist Erik Johannson creates amazing photo-realistic fantasy images that stretch the imagination, almost making us believe that such things could actually happen.

It's amazing how jaded our society's view of beauty and perfection is.

Photo alteration has sparked some wide debates over the years, especially in magazines meant as news sources. This article talks about Times wanting to add fat to a model's picture because the editors believed she was too thin. I see two problems here. One, she became that thin because YOU made her feel she had to in order to get a spot on your magazine cover and others, as I'm sure she models consistently. Two, take pictures of who you want to take pictures of. If you don't want a skinny model on your cover because you don't want readers to think you're advocating the eat-practically-nothing diet, then don't hire models who struggle with those restrictions in their daily life. It's hypocritical to support an industry, but then make yourselves look like you're not. Ridiculous.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
