A lot has happened in the world since we last visited the quirky and thought-provoking work of Atlanta-based BBDO Creative Director Stephen McMennamy. Yet his steadfast #ComboPhotos project continues to churn out clever mashups and engage people around the globe. In fact, as cited in our previous post (here) back in September 2015, he had almost 50K Instagram followers… well, his following has ballooned to 226K and growing. And for good reason. His compositions, which are all comprised of original, thoughtfully captured photography (rather than stock images) are simple and fun. Their brilliance is in their subtlety, and also the purposeful absence of Photoshop blending tools. McMennamy’s work makes us do a double-take, which is a sure measure of something special in our minds. His work is as impressive as ever… can’t wait to check back in another 16 months to see what McMennamy has conjured up.

We really enjoy art, design and photography that makes you look twice… where things are not quite what they seem. Atlanta-based BBDO creative director Stephen McMennamy achieves this beautifully with an ongoing project he calls #ComboPhotos. Rather than employing Photoshop to seamlessly merge photos to create these juxtapositions, McMennamy simply stacks two separate photos with conceptual and compositional similarities. The result is often humorous and unexpected. He plays with scale in a really terrific way, and we particularly love that it’s not perfectly seamless. Very well done. We’re sure his almost 50,000 Instagram followers would agree.
