Standing out as a photographer in a world where we all have a camera is a little harder. That’s why we’re more and more seeing the photographer-as-artist creating a unique product by taking different art forms and throwing them together into a collection of beautiful chaos.

Michael Donovan is one photographer that’s taken our breaths away in the past with his unique creative effects. You need only look at this shoot with Sheila Marquez: it has all the hallmarks of a great shoot already, from the dark styling by Katie Burnett to the rustic setting. But adding the little blobs of paint, the folds in the paper, the wear and tear that makes the shots look eery and haunting; that’s what elevates it to another level.
