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.

It kinda came about because I realised some of the things I was posting in the rather wonderful 'Abstract' thread weren't really abstract. Glad you like it. I love the photos posted so far. I'll be interested to see future photos.

Ah, hae you posted this one before? Fits well into this context.

Interesting (especially vis-a-vis the HCB discussion) how easily street photography with a canny eye (such as above, or the reflections in the previous post, or the guys in masks etc etc) can slip into surrealism if you want it to.

"The aim [of Surrealism] 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"
