Spheres of Surrealism - Photography by Karl Dmitri Bishop

Spheres of Surrealism - Photography by Karl Dmitri Bishop | Photography News Journal | Scoop.it

Karl Dmitri Bishop – the Unconscious, the Absurd and the Fantastic.

 

Are these photos from this world? This question rises looking at Karl Dmitri Bishop’s works. His images take us back into the spheres of Surrealism. And further.


Bishop seems to pick up several techniques from 1920s Surrealists to create certain pictures in his black and white images that leave our common surroundings behind. Overlays and double exposures evoke dreamlike impressions. The photos origin lies clearly in today’s world, but by creating his collages Bishop opens up an entire new space, not only in his images but also for the spectator’s view. Looking at his photos feels like making a journey. Layer by Layer: you enter a whole different — yes a rather surreal — world. Our common understanding seems to be left behind. And even though his compositions question todays’ status quo one thing is revealed: Life is more than just an image with one dimension, one country or one feeling.

Do you think it’s important to study photography?

Somebody once told me “If you want to be a photographer, you have to go to university”. That really upset me and made me even more determined to prove them wrong. Creativity comes from within, I believe my work mirrors my untapped thoughts and desires.
I taught myself through trial and error, developing my own sense of style. I don’t take photos the professional way. I’m a bit more DIY, that’s what makes me different.
