Michael Massaia’s photography evokes unusual, yet sentimental, emotions.

To create his images, collected together under the series title “Transmogrify,” Massaia spent some time experimenting with the aesthetic possibilities of melted ice cream.

His long-exposure images capture a subject matter familiar to most — he frames the frozen treats most people’s summer memories are made of.

According to Katherine Brooks (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/katherine-brooks/), he distorts the childhood favorites by melting them before his lens, until the pops resemble ominous pools of paint or celestial snapshots.

    1. I agree. Bizarre. But fascinating. Sometimes I come across art that is familiar, yet so far different from what I’m used to. I wonder if others would be interested in that side of creativity. But the time, the mind behind the art — I couldn’t resist.
