The Guardian posted a few of Colin Batty‘s wonderful sci-fi portraits. See more of his work here!

Colin Batty’s interest in the bizarre stems from a childhood love of sci-fi. “The kids who weren’t good at sports would spend a lot of time on their own,” he says. “So I got into outsider stuff, like Frankenstein and movie monsters.” The Mancunian artist has worked in animation for 30 years, including on the Oscar-winning short The Sandman in 1992 and various Tim Burton films. His most recent project is a series of cabinet cards – late-19th- and early-20th-century formal portraits he alters to include unexpected monstrous elements. “The photos suggest their own stories. Some are just crying out for me to stick something in there.”
