Summary
The dreamlike quality of the images is fascinating and the ideas can be very intriguing. Using the photographic medium to create surreal images is most effective as the objects appearing so real tend to fool the minds eye. It must be real, its a photograph of a real object. Very diverse objects and images can be used together to create unsettling results for the viewer. While some surreal images can be created that are very mysterious, many can also have a very humorous aspect to them. To see oversized vegetables suspended in a room or an Ethiopian Coke bottle floating in the sky is abnormal and funny as well
