Laurent Rosset


Italian photo manipulation maestro Laurent Rosset uses Photoshop with the technique of an Old Master to produce Inception-style mind-altering images. Rosset creates compositions based upon his own photography, navigating between surrealism, idealism, and warping between 2 and 3D. In series such as Sleep (t)Height, Rosset plays with the human form, nature, and architecture, distorting space to create images that are both oddly real and impossible.

The artist is a self-proclaimed dreamer and perfectionist who believes in true love. Trained as an architect, his profound understanding of space provides the point of departure for his carefully crafted realities – a woman becomes a coastline, a house floats off on a hot-air balloon, cities invert themselves…
