Surrealist Photography

Prompted by the discussion in the Cartier-Bresson thread, I was prompted to buy a book of Surrealist Photography, and realised I quite liked a lot of what was there. It isn't all melting watches and elephants on stilts. Anyway, here are some of my attempts at similar shots, and anyone is welcome to contribute.

This is a great idea for a thread. I must admit though, that I feel better when I have at least some quasi-specific definition of what it is that I'm trying to convey through a posting, and surrealism is notoriously difficult to define and, if it's not a contradiction to what I just said, difficult to define. So let's call on good ol' Wikipedia:

Quote:
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 and/or an idea/concept.


Surrealist works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur
I'll be fascinated to see what else crops up as this thread progresses. By the way Rodchenko I'd say you have some really good surrealist ideas among the images you posted, like #s 1 and 3.

OK, enough chit-chat, here is my first offering:

Thanks for your contribution. I had feared I might plough a lonely furrow with this thread, but that's right in the spirit of it.
