Violation of reality.

'In a medium whose very essence is the ability to reproduce the look of everyday reality, one of the surest ways of attracting the viewers attention is to violate that reality' (Paul Messaris)


We are subconsciously drawn to unfamiliar objects, even when they are only slightly different to the familiar ones. This work demonstrates how real objects and scenes can be manipulated into something far from real, to attract the public’s attention.


Created with a real landscapes, toy dinosaurs and male models, combined in photoshop to create a surreal, unfamiliar piece of work.
