Black and white wartime photos transformed into ghostly fantasies

(CNN)Australian photographer and artist Jane Long often threads elements of fantasy into her works. But her latest series takes surrealism to a whole new level.

The series, "Dancing with Costica," reinterprets a collection of black and white images by famed Romanian war photographer, Costică Acsinte, whose photos Long stumbled upon in a Flickr archive.
Fascinated by the nameless subjects portrayed in his images, Long reimagines the photos by adding her own, colorful touches using software such as Lightroom and Photoshop. Long elaborates on her creative process in the gallery above, where the original and edited images appear side by side.
