Paris-based portraitist and “creative retoucher” Cal Redback creates surreal images by fusing flames and botanical elements into photos of his friends.

“I made these images to put part of my imagination in the portraits of my friends in common areas,” said Redback. “My first idea was to make a double exposition as we used to see, but when I started to blend them on Photoshop, I realized that I could be a bit more creative and realistic. So after many hours (and a bit more) here they are.”
