Foggy, Dream-like Visions by Martin Vlach

Martin Vlach is a conceptual photographer who adds elements of dreamy surrealism to his black-and-white digital photography. There is a feeling of mystery, grief, and curiosity that pervades his work. Like lonely revenants, people stand stiffly in fog-choked fields, their backs to the camera, seeming to hover on the edge between this world and the next. Above them, whales swim eerily through the fog, and in other images, people plummet from the sky, as if dropped into purgatory. The haziness and ambiguity of Vlach’s images create a world within which the viewer can distill their strongest emotions into moments of profound contemplation.
