Mesmerising Photographs That Looks Like Painted Artwork

It is common to see paintings that look that photographs all the time and is great. But it is rare to find it the other way around. This is the work of Alexa Meade, where she paints on subjects and objects in a way that “optically compresses 3D space into a 2D plane when photographed”.

I find it incredibly contemporary and eye defeating.

    If these are photographs then why on the last picture the man only casts a shadow with one hand and the rest of his body is shadowless…?

    Lighting maybe?

    Because that hand is farther from the wall than the rest of him.
