LEADING FIGURES IN CONTEMPORARY SURREALIST PHOTOGRAPHY

Vikram Kushwah

Vikram Kushwah’s hypnotic surrealist photographs carry a childlike curiosity. Winner of Portrait of Britain 2018 and 2019, Kushwah’s phantasmagorical scenes are playful in their deconstruction of reality. Subdued woodlands and nymph-like subjects are shot on analogue, heightening the sense of otherworldliness.

Peter Horvath

Peter Horvath masterfully subverts and recontextualises a wealth of 20th-century imagery. Horvath’s mesmerising pieces are rooted in his fascination for perspective and texture as iconic figures undergo a mystical transformation of colour and space.

Martin Stranka

Martin Stranka work occupies a space between photography and illustration. The collision of binaries – man and nature, nature and machine – feature heavily in Stranka’s photography. Stranka’s understanding of movement means these interactions are strangely beautiful.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF SURREALIST PHOTOGRAPHY

Surrealism in photography pivots around the rejection of reality in favour of striking composition, distorted landscapes and dismembered body parts. After the trauma of the First World War the collective consciousness shifted. Reality and sanity, once ubiquitous totems of a functioning society, were now being questioned throughout art and literature.

The Surrealist Manifesto, published by Andre Breton in 1924, worshipped the subconscious imagination. Different techniques involving light exposure and photographic montage helped artists capture the dream-like state so crucial to Surrealist ideology. In a post-truth world, the dizzying absurdities explored by surrealist photography feel just as relevant now as in the 20th century. Artworks vary in colour from the vibrant to the more muted, ranging from subversive portraits to unconventional landscapes which add a dynamic flare to any space.
