An AI portrays what Freddie Mercury or Elvis Presley would be like if they lived today

A photographer has harnessed the power of artificial intelligence to bring back to life stars and celebrities who left us too soon. Among the portraits of these characters who died young, we find those of Princess Diana, Kurt Cobain, John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Freddie Mercury and many others.

The project’s alma mater is Alper Yesiltas , a Turkey-based photographer who created the portraits for a project titled ‘As If Nothing Happened’ in which he used artificial intelligence photo enhancement software and photo editing programs to create the resulting images.
