Ryan Bleyswyck - Surrealism In Photography

Ryan Bleyswyck is depicted in all manners of illogical positions, in his series of self portraits. The work is akin to that of the Surrealists of the 1940s, especially resonating with Salvador Dali and photographer Phillipe Halsman's collaborative work.
Surrealism brought photography into an art form in it's own right, having only previously been thought of as a technique that could replicate real life imagery. Surrealist photography presented the idea that just like painting, ideas, themes and artistic expression could be communicated through the medium.
Bleyswyck has created energy within his work through the composition of objects, deep and diverse lighting techniques and orientation of the overall photograph.
Ryan Bleyswyck graduates from Falmouth University this year. See more of his work on his website.
