Photographer Elido Turco Transforms Forest Trees into Mysterious Creatures

Drawing inspiration from nature and organic forms, Italian photographer Elido Turco, transforms tree bark into mysterious forest creatures with just a few photo editing tricks. The artist uses simple mirror image techniques and the natural textures on the surface of the trees to create elaborate beings that seem to come straight from J.R.R. Tolkien's books or Jim Henson's sketches.
