Living in a Surreal World

Skiing on cloth by Thomas Barbey

In every location Thomas Barbey has traveled to, he has taken photographs. He uses the pictures to create artistic montages of a imaginary concepts, which are technically made with a combination of negatives, pre-planned double exposures, and/or other methods. His work is heavily inspired by his travels, everyday life, and art by Rene Magritte, M.C. Escher, and Roger Dean.
