Edvin Puzinkevich is Senior Retoucher at Vault 49 - a New York design and illustration studio - where his clients have included notable names such as Nike, Intel, Audi, Levi’s, Chevrolet and Oakley. One of his personal projects, Elements, is especially interesting. Edvin explained to me that he wanted to explore the idea of people being able to control their surrounding elements, and how people could change and interact with the elements' physical characteristics.
He crafted his vision using nothing but stock images with the goal of getting a natural and realistic look to each piece. The hardest part accomplishing this, he told me, was getting the color and contrast to work in a believable way. I think he nailed it. Take a look at each image and the incredible details that lie within.
