As If Nothing Happened: Photographer Used Neural Network To See How Celebrities Would Look Today If They Were Alive

According to Alper Yesiltas: “I am Alper Yesiltas, a lawyer and photographer living in Istanbul, Turkey. I’ve been imagining scenes and capturing memories for about 19 years now. During that time, some of my photos have been edited worldwide in books, magazines, exhibitions, and websites and were awarded in several photo contests.

I would like to share with you the first collection of images of my AI-based project called “As if nothing happened”. Behind this project lies the question of “how would people look photo-realistically if some great events had not happened to them”. I look forward to your feedback and suggestions.”

“With the development of AI technology, I’ve been excited for a while, thinking that “anything imaginable can be shown in reality”. When I started tinkering with technology, I saw what I could do and thought about what would make me the happiest. I wanted to see some of the people I missed again in front of me and that’s how this project emerged.”

“The hardest part of the creative process for me is making the image feel “real” to me. The moment I like the most is when I think the image in front of me looks very realistic as if it was taken by a photographer.

I am using various software programs. The time it takes for me to create one fully finished image varies, but I would say it takes a while for an image to feel “real” to me.”

“There are 10 images so far in this project, I want to extend it but I want to do it in a selective way, so the process is a little bit slow for me. For future projects, there are various things I imagine about real life using AI technology. Like “Life in 2050” and “Alternate Museum”.”
