James Day: The Illusionists

View Artist

Photographer James Day photographed 3 magicians for Wired UK’s latest story ‘The Illusionists.’ His subjects, Gustav Kuhn, Hugo Caffaratti, and Rubens Filho, were each shot mid trick while discussing the psychology behind their art. Further study into the field has even shined light onto how the human brain functions- particularly on how easy it is to manipulate desicion making and deeply held beliefs. For Kuhn, who is also a neuroscientist, “magic’s strong connection to deception will help us understand more about the mind’s limitation when it come to working out what is true and what is not.”
