Creatively Surreal Portraits by 21-Year-Old Audrey Simper

The creative photography of 21-year-old Audrey Simper is an inspiring collection of conceptual portraits that blend real with surreal. Based in Chicago, the self-taught artist brings her imagination alive in subtle and not-so-subtle digital manipulations. Whether there’s a third hand reaching out from the shadows or goldfish floating out of a sleeping beauty’s mouth, each composition features skillfully concocted realities.

For each concept, Simper begins with a moment of inspiration which she then develops across time. She researches ideas, outfits, make-up, and sets, and builds a vision across months to bring her idea to life through her photography. Simper has been creating her art since 2008 and she says, “I have found that the best way to live life is by following my heart in doing what makes me happy and creating has made me the most gratified.”
