Surrealist photography

“Dictated by the thought, in the absence of any control exercised by reason, exempt from any aesthetic or moral concern." This is the definition of Surrealism by André Breton in his Surrealism Manifesto in 1924. Photography is generally viewed as a stopped image, a reflection of reality, how could it be surrealist? Can the photographer have the power to distort this reality with a simple “dictated thought"? Surrealists remind us of a simple fact: the word photography's origin means “writing with light", it is therefore one of the most limitless art forms. These photographs will draw the spectator's attention. Indeed, these unique shots are the result of different post-print technics, inventive installations or innovative viewpoints. Artsper has chosen for you a wide selection of surrealist images that will blow your mind!
