Mysteriously Playful Composite Images by Dariusz Klimczak


Polish photographer Dariusz Klimczak constructs surreal landscapes through clever manipulation. Each image in the skilled photo editor’s growing collection is a composite of multiple elements that work in unison to present a cohesive, albeit unusual, scene. More often than not, Klimczak’s subjects are situated in deserted, barren lands that make the viewer question how any of the characters wound up in that spot.

Whether a little girl is somehow atop a massive boulder in the middle of nowhere, a disproportionately giant suitcase is being tugged by a tiny man in a desert, or a ladder is inexplicably extending from a decaying tree stump, Klimczak’s monochromatic images offer a simultaneous sense of mystery and playfulness. There’s a fantasy-filled appeal to the baffling world he has created and continues to expand.
