This is NOT a Photo of Morgan Freeman

It might sound impossible but the image above isn’t a photo of the well know Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman. It is actually the work of U.K. based artist Kyle Lambert who hand painted this using only his fingers (a technique called finger painting) with no less than 285,000 stokes and over 200 hours! which were squeezed into less than 4 min of video.

This is not the first time we see a ultrarealistic image of course however the quality of the result and the technique used (the entire thing was painted on a tablet) is truly mind bugling and blurs the line between (what we see as) painting and photography.
