Surreal Scenes Reveal Artist’s Innermost Personal Secrets

Canadian artist Leah Johnston has mastered the art of storytelling through her visually creative and expressive fine art photography. Each surreal scene is a self-portrait that combines performance art and post-processing to produce an intriguing narrative. The artist bravely takes us on adventures through a lively and personal world that stems from her own creative writing. The emotional moments conveyed in each composition, paired with titles like Grasping Our Potential, Cycles of Sadness, and Sea of Broken Dreams, are a window into Johnston’s innermost thoughts and feelings.

Having always been fascinated with how secrets affect our everyday lives, Johnston says, “It is here, in the secret worlds of our minds, that we are truly able to express our innermost selves, freely exploring the expansive realities of the soul; striped of the boxes that society has placed us in. It is both my own longing for this world and my daily repression of it that spurs me to create.”
