Just for fun: Human body collages

For your Christmas cheer, may I present the work of photographer Cecelia Webber?

Here's one of her pieces:

Hummingbird: Cecilia chooses her models from everyday people and refuses to edit them by changing their features. To capture the right angles she will stand on the top of tables, over railings on higher floors or balance her camera in precarious places

Take a closer look. Notice anything interesting? The entire composition is constructed by editing together pictures of nude models. The photos are digitally cut, rotated, resized and colored to suit Webber's needs.

Here's another example:

These amazing images of colourful birds and insects have been given a truly human touch
