In the 1960’s and 1970’s emerged a movement that countered both minimalism and abstract expressionism, the Photorealism. In a photorealist painting, the artist paints from a photograph with a perfect detail that can be easily mistaken for photographs. On the other hand, technology grows and creates a contrary movement, the photography which looks like paintings. Photographs, that with no or minor Photoshop manipulation, give you the impression of a wonderful painting. I gathered here some photos from both sides. Enjoy them.
