Spanish photographer and neuroscientist Al Mefer has captured some out-of-this-world images of Benidorm’s Martian structures. The photographs of the buildings were post-processed and laid on a coloured background to create the illusion they are floating, or part of an alien landscape.
In recent years, Benidorm’s brutal hotel structures have come under appreciation from architecture critics and designers alike, as the skyscrapers built quickly to match the rise of package holidays throughout the Seventies and Eighties are now being enjoyed for their strange form. The city currently has the most high-rise structures per capita in the world.
Al Mefer focused on the bubble balconies and pastel colours that set the hotels apart from other tourist builds along the Costa del Sol. Straight columns and bright orange walls make the architecture look more Blade Runner than Alicante.
Bonnie Cee is a talented photographer and retoucher from Brisbane who currently lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Bonnie focuses on portraiture, she shoots gorgeous fashion, beauty and editorial photography. With subtle references to screen sirens and historical interludes, Cee’s work is intensely feminine and refined.
Her personal retouching signature envelops her work to create artistry in the image and a subject that is familiar and comforting. Bonnie cherishes the art of photography not for its highly potent infamy but for its artistic value and credentials.
“My freelance work has taken me all the way from Australia to Los Angeles, and has been featured internationally both in print and digitally. I’ve been lucky enough to work with world-class models, makeup artists, and stylists, and I’m always looking toward the next project, the next opportunity to create something beautiful,” she says.
