Photographer John Wilhelm captures photos of his three daughters and his girlfriend, but then applies a fair amount of post-processing in order to create amazing artworks.
Standing out in the crowded world of photography is a pretty tough job. However, if you have enough imagination, then you will succeed in grabbing praises from photography lovers.
Although he is working as an IT director at a Switzerland-based university, John Wilhelm is finding enough time to experiment with photography and post-processing, while being very good at both jobs.
His photo project does not have a name, but it can be easily seen that he has put a lot of effort and love into them. The reason for that is also because the subjects of his images are his daughters: 5-year-old Lou, 2.8-year-old Mila, and 6-month-old Yuna. In addition, his girlfriend Judith is an important subject in John Wilhelm’s photography, too.
John Wilhelm’s photo manipulations of his girlfriend and daughters are astonishing
John Wilhelm’s photo manipulations are both funny and crazy. The photographer says that most of his inspiration comes from watching TV and playing video games, as these are the things that used to keep him occupied during his childhood.
