Emerging Talent — The Surreal Imagery of Martin Marcisovsky

 1 2 3 4 5 6 Next


Dublin-based photographer Martin Marcisovsky captures subjects placed in distinctly dream-like landscapes. There is a feeling of voyeurism as you look at these lonely figures. The subjects seem to be either lost in their own contemplations or moving forward on some sort of mystery quest with their backs to the viewer. Lord of the Rings meets Dune with a dash of Salvador Dali – sometimes fantasy, sometimes sci-fi these surreal presentations of the deep corners of the artist’s mind are wildly creative. Click through images above to enter some awesomely bizarre worlds.

I asked the artist to elaborate a bit on these insanely cool images:

“Whether the subject is a child or an adult, they each evoke their own level of self-discovery. Essentially, there are two ways to interpret each image—as a representation of feeling lost and isolated or a visual interpretation of contemplatively being in tune with oneself. It’s up to the viewer’s own intuitive perspective to decide how they interpret the intriguing series of works.”

    We are the Creator and the created ones as well. We bring color because we are the color. We bring life in lifeless places. We are the light of the world and we are still learning the way of the universe under harsh conditions…
    Superb work’s!

    It is indeed an amazing capture.

      @faisal: It’s probably not “an amazing capture”; I would be willing to bet money that this image was mostly created in Photoshop (or a similar application). Which, in my view anyway, removes it from the category of “a capture” (i.e., a photograph).

      I believe much of what passes for photography nowadays should really be classified as something else — e.g., photo-based art, a digital creation, or something along those lines.
