I’ve never really been into surreal photography but this photo (‘untitled_folly’) from Jim Kazanjian just blows me away. It reminds me a bit of The Corpse Bride and Coraline, as well as The Grinch and Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, no? Very fantastical.
He creates them by recomposing bits and pieces from multiple photos, creating impossible structures that look like they came from fantasy books. Click here to see more of his stunning photos.
I like what this critic says of him “in Kazanjian’s hands, this freedom from naturalistic vision gives way to an uncanny space that is familiar but foreign—a fantasy both wild and gloomy.”
A fantasy both wild and gloomy.
