Philipp Igumnov’s Collages Insert Supernatural Elements into Everyday Situations

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Russian collage artist Philipp Igumnov doctors old photographs to make them look like documentation of supernatural occurrences. An enormous cumulous cloud with doors and windows becomes a celestial residence; a woman holds up her palm to reveal a swarm of miniature UFOs; a soccer goalie dives to catch a speeding comet. Igumnov seems to enjoy messing with the idea of photography as a truth-telling medium and manipulates it to indulge his viewers’ curiosity about aliens, ghosts, and the like.
