Russian fine art photographer Platon Yurich creates dreamlike images by merging surrealism with digital art. A talented photo manipulator, filmmaker, and creative director, Yurich’s growing portfolio of conceptual photography evokes mystery and wonder, and encourages the viewer to explore their imagination.
By merging majestic landscapes with human subjects, Yurich’s images often tell stories of man’s interaction with nature. In one photo, a man stands in the middle of a field, surrounded by fallen giant jigsaw pieces that seemingly belong in the sky. In another, a girl sits gazing out the window of an underwater train, with dolphins swimming alongside. A third image shows a man who appears to be painting the transition from day to night over a cityscape. Each scene is an enchanting escape from reality, in its own way.
In some cases, Yurich creates his surreal scenes without the use of Photoshop. Instead, he carefully sets them up in real life. One example is a portrait of a woman who appears to have a torn pencil drawing over her face. This trick-of-the-eye image was created in-camera, with the clever use of makeup.
