Three things crossed my mind when I first saw these images in various locations in the blogosphere: curiosity, freak out, then amazement.

Just as you are about to touch it, the subject actually moves to reveal that it’s an actual person who got painted by Alexa Meade (painting portraits on actual people), you would…
Freak out: WTH?! OMG! *jump back*

once your heart stops racing from being absolutely surprised, you look at this concept with…
Amazement: like that photo below, you would naturally smile because it’s looks, for lack of a better word, cool. Then curiosity sets in again, you’d want to take a closer look.

When I read the description on Design Milk, I thought they made a typo. They describe these images as paintings and when I saw them, I thought “hello? these are black and white photographs”. Boy, I’m a doofus. These images are very very realistic!! I really thought they were photos!! I just became a fan of Maria Stabio.
