Stars Who Passed Away Decades Ago Are "Brought To Life" By Artificial Intelligence
A photographer has revived some of his favorite celebrities who passed away "too soon," either from illnesses, accidents, or drug overdoses, using artificial intelligence. Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, John Lennon, Princess Diana, and more figures appeared in his images.
Alper Yesiltas, a photographer with a base in Turkey, created the lifelike pictures for a project titled "As If Nothing Happened," according to the Daily Mail.
Software that can "age" the subjects in the images helped him.
His "As If Nothing Happened" project includes pictures of beloved stars who passed away when they were still young.

Princess Diana was killed in Paris at the age of 36 in a serious accident while being chased by paparazzi in the early hours of 31 August 1997.

The photographer said, "Making the image look 'real' to me is the hardest aspect of the creative process for me".
