The Snake Charmer


The Snake Charmer is a result of a trip I made to an abandoned tuberculosis hospital in New York.  The graffiti was amazing in this place.  The  colorful squiggle of the line on the wall reminded me of a snake.   I had purchased a series of vintage images that consisted of snake charmers and knew this would be the place to use one of them.  Using photoshop magic I made the actual snake take on the color of the “snake graffiti” so he appears to be coming from the wall.  I also did this with the graffiti road, extending it from the wall towards the viewer.  A little sense of surreal humor on my part.  Texture used in this image is from the Dirk Wuestenhagen collection which you can purchase from Dirk’s website.

Equipment:  Fuji X-T1

Software:  Photoshop CC, Nik ColoEfex Pro,  Adobe Painter
