I didn’t realize I was into surrealist photos until I came across these stunning portraits by Katerina Plotnikova the other day:
Of course this naturally led me to discover other surrealist photographers and I think I’ve found my favorite: Oleg Oprisco. I don’t know much about him (yet), but I do plan on decorating my bedroom with his portraits.
I love the fairytale dimension of each picture. It’s like under the surface of the real world, somewhere that parallels the drudgery and commonplace, exists this glittering, magical place where anything can happen. A place of whimsy and great beauty and untold magic. I probably like these pictures for the same reason that I love magical realism novels and the movie, The Adjustment Bureau.
