Hollow mixed photography art by HighTom from instagram
HighTom, an artist from instagram, is using photo manipulations in his photography work to display what is happening underneath of what is visible to the naked eye. Doing this he is trying to achieve the symbiosis of the visible and the non visible realm. He is expressing things like emotions, hidden thoughts, memories or character.
Tom is trying to represent both, the person as a physical being in his photograph and as a mindful being with thoughts, memories and emotions at once. The whole idea is to express that what can be seen from a person is just a tip of the iceberg because all of us have a face, but everyone is totally different underneath. When creating a photo portrait it is not good enough to capture just that tip of the iceberg.
