Romanian artist Caras Ionut's fine art photo manipulations cleverly merge reality with lively dreams. In the imaginative scenes, viewers are introduced to odd behavior like a young girl fishing while riding atop another giant fish or a rhino walking on water.
To create each piece, Ionut begins with a collection of his own photography (examples of which can be seen below). He then merges the elements together, transforming them into the carefully concocted worlds. His endless ideas invite viewers into adventures that convey a sense of happiness enveloped in ominous landscapes filled with turbulent skies and desert lands.
“Most people when considering dreams would think of good positive dreams, and I like to think I capture that in my work. I also seem to visit the darker side of what people may see in dreams, not necessarily what one would see as negative, but possibly a dream that one could not quite understand or [from which one] may feel alone,” explains Ionut.
