Artificial Girls by Patrice Murciano

Patrice Murciano was born May 27, 1969 in Belfort and grew up in the South of France. Since discovering the possibilities of technology, he has dedicated a gracious amount of time to constructing bizarre photo manipulations, highlighting nude, animatronic women in surreal, sometimes disturbing compositions. To each his own. Weird Science.
