Imaginative Photographer Turns Mundane Reality into Wonderfully Surreal Adventures

Master photo manipulator Vincent Bourilhon is back with new images sharing his delightful world of wonder and imagination. Based in Paris, many of the artist's fantastical shots feature landmarks of his beloved city in the background. His surreal visuals shed light on the marvelous perspective Bourilhon has on reality. Having first picked up a camera at 16, this young creative has continued to develop and fine-tune his artistic skills over the years, adeptly producing remarkable visual narratives for his growing audience.

As he matures his craft, Bourilhon gets better and better at sharing his unique outlook through stunning, surreal photographs. Reoccurring motifs of lights, rainclouds, sail boats and miniaturized characters saturate his portfolio, creating a collection that reminds one of a modern day Peter Pan-inspired adventure tale. His amazing, cinematic images continue to transform the mundane into spectacles of magic and adventure.

“I love fantasizing, I love inventing and creating. I think the real world is flat, not original and very negative. If art does not lead us to a different world in which we all live, it does not meet its mission. I am passionate about the dream and magic that surround our thoughts. If we can express ourselves, we should do that.” –Vincent Bourilhon
