Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s, and is best known for its visual artworks and writings. The aim was to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality.” Artists painted unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision, created strange creatures from everyday objects and developed painting techniques that allowed the unconscious to express itself
Veteran photographer Thomas Barbèy has created an amazing surrealism series. this inspirational artist has spent more than 20 years perfecting his craft. He currently resides in Las Vegas and works exclusively in black and white, including sepia toning, masterfully transforming colorless photomontages into surrealistic fine art.
Some of his techniques include putting negatives together and then photographing them from above, along with traditional retouching and photoshopping. The result is a powerful collection of imaginative works that tantalize the eye. Sit back and enjoy Barbèy’s amazing art — and remind yourself how fantastical a photo can be.
