Jeffrey Vanhoutte’s new hybrid-human figures photography

Belgian photographer Jeffrey Vanhoutte and the modern artist Babak Hosseiny are the authors of the series ” ô les mains” where surreal, hybrid-human figures have limbs coming out every imaginable places.

Hands and arms sprout out and protrude from mouths, eyes, necks and backs, interacting with the face and body they are each attached to. In some cases, a struggle appears to be taking place between the two parties; in other instances, the hand and fingers are merely an extension of the person, casually germinating from the subject’s forehead.

In their realization, the images required the interplay between staged photographic scenography, makeup, and post-production retouching in order to allow them a highly realistic quality.
