Surrealism

“Unconscious Metaphors”

The overreaching goal of this 20th-century avant-garde movement in art and culture was to magnify  the creative potential of the unconscious mind.  The Surrealists believed that the conscious mind repressed the power of imagination, weighting it down with taboos. In surreal photography lighting and exposures are often played with more than in conventional photography, and this can lead to ghostly forms, abstract shapes and interesting use of light/shadows. .   Through  free association, cerebral yet irrational, we can witness the  juxtaposition of the  intellectual narrative of reality with a dream world.
