Pavel Maria Smejkal - Fatescapes

Some truly thought provoking work from Pavel Maria Smejkal. In his series Fatescapes he takes iconic photoraphs throughout history and through digital manipulation he removes the central theme or focus. What we are left with is usually an eerie and empty image. It plays with your emotions and makes you question, what if this event never happened in the first place? I took the liberty of hunting down samples of the originals because when I was looking through his work I found myself obsessed with finding the original photograph.
