Photo manipulations offer realistic visions of life after the apocalypse

For his Life After the Apocalypse series, Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin starts with real photographs, adding digital decay and overgrowth to create an eerily realistic sense of how the world might look long after most humans are gone.

Although Manyuhin goes for realism in his digital illustrations, he does have a bit of fun with his compositions. Maybe those lions are descendants of some Bronx Zoo refugees?
