Hyper realist Australian photographer Dean West has teamed up with LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya on a series of photographs that explore contemporary identity. The work posits that identity today exists mostly as a cultural creation that has been heavily manipulated and commercialized.
The result is hyper-real photographs containing hidden LEGO sculptures within each image. The fun begins when trying to find Sawaya’s sculptures, which once revealed, emphasize how artificial and manipulated modern photographs can be.
Take a look at the series above and let us know if you can spot the LEGO sculptures in the comment section below.
