Surreal Photographs – Surrealist photographs of Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Andre Breton, Brassai, Salvador Dali, Philippe Halsman, Andre Kertesz and Hans Bellmer are considered giants of art. This old school photographers crafted their dream like imagery on film, canvas and in the darkroom or studio. One of the great modern masters of surreal photography is darkroom magician Jerry Uelsmann.
Adobe Photoshop has allowed artists with surrealist visions to create amazing far out imagery on the computer by manipulating and compositing various images and elements to create the final piece.
Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision.
It’s no coincidence that surrealism started around the time of Freud and his investigations into dreams and how they might give clues to what is going on inside someone’s brain. Are these dreams simply fragments of memory edited together or are they signs of something deeper? Do dreams have meaning or are they meaningless nonsense that we are trying to interrupt as something meaningful?
You can even buy books of dreams. Look up the dream say “flying” and there will be a meaning assigned. Fortune telling or real science?
Here are some sample surreal photographs from fine art photographer Edward M. Fielding that uses elements of mystery and dreams.
