Dreams and Surrealism Alastair Magnaldo

Written by DEKYA

Amazing Surreal Photography by French artist Alastair Magnaldo. Every of his picture tells a story. Alastair turns his work in surrealist paintings in which children’s dreams come true – climb a rainbow, wipe the sun, a star …Before Alastair Magnaldo creates another work he makes a sketch first, and then he starts his photo hunting, searching for the right props for his photo.

The creation of one incredible work takes at least eight hours, six of which are spent on computer processing. When Alastair needs a new landscape photo for his photo painting it may take him several hours just waiting for the perfect shot. Therefore, the work time is a relative matter. For one of his works he had to wait two years for the right moonset. Alastair does not like to call himself neither an artist nor a photographer. He says he is a collector of images. He is an extension of the imagination. 

As the Freudian theory emphasized the importance of the unconscious mind, and a primary assumption of this theory is that the unconscious mind governs behavior to a greater degree than people suspect. Indeed, the goal of psychoanalysis is to make the unconscious conscious…..so how would you literally picture/ capture your inner most dreams in a photo?
