When we discover the portraits of the artist Denis Sheckler, aka pills_for_skills on Instagram, there are two contrasting sentiments : the wonder first, the fear secondly, because they are sublimely disturbing.

The artist uses Photoshop to rework exclusively female portraits photos that he “erase” their faces to spring up or put them in planets, stars, fire or aquatic plants, as we can discover below.

The result ? A series of retro and psychedelic shots where hollow faces, emotionless, can leave us puzzled about human emotions and their relativity in relation to the earth’s four elements.
