Parallels are both transfixing and utterly surreal. Surrealist works are ethereal; it demonstrates an appreciation for nature, eccentric characters, and discarded objects. The belief that there is an enigmatic and mysterious place that every person has ever visited is superior to the confinements of reality. We stumble upon surrealism so regularly that we take it for granted as conscious beings. The realm of our dreams is one with which we are all familiar. When we confuse our dreams with actuality, there is a reason for it. Like the spaces in between the silence photography, you can not see like me and I can not see like you. My work is a combination of my own feelings, surrealism, and a deep relationship between myself and my images.
I find more freedom to work with surrealism in street photography as it gives me the most satisfaction. I love seeing surrealism in my images. I feel this is the best way to connect with my viewers.
