Surreal Photo Manipulation of Isolated Landscapes

Polish photographer Darius Klimczak captures beautifully intriguing landscapes that boast surreal elements. The monochromatic collection of images, like much of his work, presents vast expanses of land, sky, and water that are seemingly isolated and long forgotten. His expert photo manipulation skills are put to good use as he adorns the breathtaking landscapes with puzzling visuals.

In one instance, Klimczak features a mountainous region with a tree that has bloomed large hair combs in place of branches sprouting leaves. In countless other photos, viewers are presented with an endless wasteland accented with unusual deserted vessels and pools of water. While a ship is far more understandable to have washed up on a beachy area, one image reveals a derailed train buried in the sand with no evidence of any tracks ever having snaked through the desert. In this manner, each bewildering image has a sense of humor. Klimczak says of his work, “[My photos] seek mood, joke and universal symbols, which can strike, make the viewer contemplate or laugh.”
