Resembling a dream, the surrealist photography by Sam Johnson

Resembling a dream, the surrealist photography by Sam Johnson

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Photography

Sam Johnson is an 18-year-old Australian photographer author of Resembling a dream, a collection of urban landscapes manipulated in a surreal way.
His research led him to live in London, a city-endless source of inspiration for this particular type of street photography.  

His aesthetic is influenced by the famous artist KangHee Kim, who is one of the most popular surrealist artists on the contemporary art scene. The urban elements of everyday life become part of a dreamlike vision halfway between dream and reality. 

“My images are surreal reconstructions of the customary landscapes around me.” 

Through his photography Sam wants to tell the city by an emotional approach, making a sterile environment a place full of sensations and daydreams.

Housebroken, unconventional pets by Areca Roe

Housebroken, unconventional pets by Areca Roe

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Photography

For about three years Areca Roe, photographer of Minnesota, has started to take an interest in unconventional pets: her research started on the Instagram pages of several local zoos and ended with the realization of her project. Housebroken is a collection of photographs marked by a sweet irony.

“What does the owner know about the snake, despite the fact that it does not return the owner’s affection in a way we could recognize?”

Her research is not just aesthetic, Areca wants to understand what are the deep motivations that lead people to prefer these bizarre animals to a common dog, more meek and affectionate.

The images relate the contrast between the classic domestic and the wild spirit from which these animals are characterized. One might think that the subjects of the photographs are not comfortable at home, but paradoxically Housebroken wants to tell the contrary, giving space to the diversity of these animals.

Endless Summer by Andria Darius Pancrazi

Endless Summer by Andria Darius Pancrazi

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Photography

Many people like Andria Darius Pancrazi dream of an Endless Summer, but probably never thought about making a huge series of photographs about it. Warm colors alternate with cold colors, palms, architecture and shadows create what could be defined as a tropical landscape design. Originally from Corsica, but based in Oxford, he needs to realize works that remind his land, defined by himself  “blue paradise always half-asleep in the heat”.

Nostalgia leads him to fantasize and idealize landscapes of his origin and this is how these incredible works are born.

“For each photo I take, I try to channel that dreamlike, surreal mystery. I like my photos to be as disembodied and abstract as possible, to accentuate that feeling of oddness and otherworldliness that is yet to be found in the most mundane, everyday things if one looks closely enough. Living far away from it most of the time, my perception of it has slowly turned into a very aestheticized, nostalgic version of reality.”

His Endless Summer has conquered a lot of followers on Instagram, succeeding in making the spectators travel inside his real and imaginary land.

Rainbow photographs by Emmanuel Carvajal

Rainbow photographs by Emmanuel Carvajal

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Photography

Emmanuel Carvajal, an artist from Messico, is going viral on Instagram because of his colorful rainbow photographs. Every image is full of life and joy. The graphic imprint is evident: geometries, patterns, and gaudy colors come together in his images to celebrate the joy of life that distinguishes them. At the same time, the work highlights a certain taste for design.

The great variety of subjects and components of these tables makes us think of Summer, fun and heat, remanding of the Mexican mood. This dimension of cheerfulness and lightheartedness is experienced within a predominantly rainbow world, where all problems seem to be inexistent and barriers such as walls, borders and buildings become the background of freedom.

The Salt Series, the salt flats from above by Tom Hegen

The Salt Series, the salt flats from above by Tom Hegen

Giulia Ficicchia · 2 years ago · Photography

It was clear that the salt flats seen from above have their huge quote of beauty when we told you about the photographs of Brooke Holm here.

So it’s not a surprise at all that the Australian photographer is not the only one to have dedicated time to this theme and that among the lovers of this places immortalized from a not so usual perspective there’s the Munich-based photographer Tom Hegen with his series, The Salt Series.

The apparent shapeless spots of color, subjects of his photographs, represent the beauty of a long process that leads to the extraction of salt and the change of color, sometimes quite evident, because of the high presence of seaweeds in some of these places. It doesn’t matter that the theme is known by many, just give yourself few seconds to observe Tom’s photos and ask yourself if such beauty is really from this planet.
