Autoportrait | Fine art photographer: Izumi Miyazaki 未設定

Autoportrait | Fine art photographer: Izumi Miyazaki 未設定 | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

18-year-old Izumi Miyazaki arranges her daydreams into surreal photographs that are filled with deadpan humor. Each photo is manipulated so that the mundane becomes a little more magical. From levitating candy hearts to snow made of rice, Miyazaki ups the mystique with a wink of the eye.

By putting herself in the spotlight as the main subject, Miyazaki frees herself to being able to play with subtle changes in expression. Her photographs also call upon themes of identity and coming of age purely based on context. Because most of her artwork is staged in everday locations, they can almost be read as a visual diary of emotions.

The pure fun of Miyazaki’s photos is that they can be interpreted any number of ways: As a teenager’s creative way to express herself — or the product of a quirky overactive imagination.

Kyle Thompson - Fine Art photographer

Kyle Thompson - Fine Art photographer | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
Kyle Thompson is a surreal photographer based near Chicago Illinois.

Kyle Thompson is a 20 year old photographer who resides in Chicago, IL. Amazingly Kyle has only been into photographer for 9 months, but when you see his photos you will definitely think that is not the case. Check out this great interview where Kyle talks about where he finds inspiration, motivation, and how he feels about his decision to drop out of school to pursue traveling and photography.

"I draw most of my photo concepts out in a sketchbook, and sometimes still draw for fun, but I’ve definitely put nearly all my effort into photography. My style of drawing and painting hasn’t improved or changed in at least a year. I actually haven’t found much inspiration for photos through the art I had done before; my paintings were definitely more cartoon-ish and bizarre than my photographs, and I think it would be too difficult to change them into concepts." - Kyle Thompson
