Editorial collages with an abstract edge by Louise Mertens

louise-mertens-intro
Louise Mertens is an illustrator & graphic designer from Antwerp, Belgium, with a sharp eye for making editorial collage work. In her work Louise likes to bring a touch of mystery to fashion editorial photography; it’s always as if her characters are hiding something. By browsing through fashion magazines looking for clean and sharp images or by directly collaborating with a photographer Louise finds her source material, later adding an abstract layer to the images in Photoshop. I love the abstract layer in Louise’s work, it makes the minimal, clean photography get a whole different face and a hidden message you might not expect.

You can find more of Louise work on her website, Facebook page and Instagram. Enjoy!
