If surrealism is all about the subjective nature of reality, then photography is a surprisingly apt medium with which to explore this – photo stills can be thought of as “quasi-mystical”, recording both objective fact and the stuff of imagination.(…)

“What I’m looking for in my subjects is some element that transcends the surface reality of the image itself in order to speak about bigger social themes, like mortality or utopian fantasy”
