Who doesn’t like to dream and live in a fantasy world where we could be whatever we like such as our main heroes or characters…?! After all, we were children once and there is nothing wrong to still have some childish imagination from time to time. Even better if this imagination is brought into a fine art. A good source of inspiration is Susan Schroder. The idea of mixing digital painting and photograph is what fascinates me and opens an entire new world for creation. It is what I have started doing with my conceptual art.
When I do work with children or even adults, I love to talk to them and ask what they love to do, to play with, what are their dreams and what is their fantasy world. Then we can come together with an imaginative set to put them in. I get amazed by children’s imagination and how they evolve their thoughts. We should always allow room for our natural fantasies to come afloat. It is where creativity finds its own roots.
Fantasy and conceptual photography are quite close to each other with no doubt as one is part of the other. A concept is very often based in fantasies. However, here I’ve gathered the works mainly based on children. Their stories are in the blog.
