[P]hotography is one of the most versatile artistic outputs we have as humans: whether digital or film, black and white or colour, real or surreal, photography has allowed us to express ourselves at the click of a button. Aesthetics come and go, but there is one artistic style which has stood the test of time: surrealism. From the abstract art of the late 19th century to the collage creations of the modern day, photography has revolutionised the world of abstraction and vice versa.
With a record number of exhibitors at Photo London this weekend – more than 100 of the world’s leading galleries to be exact – there are images scoping the entire photographic canon. From iconic shots of times past to up-and-coming creators changing the scene, the talent is incredible and the photography is mesmerising. Take a look at our top surreal picks below.
