Transforming Camera Images into Surreal Fine Art

Solstacia II (30x60) fine art by Sam Dobrow

“Solstacia II”

Most people agree that photography is a fine art even though it has not always been thought of as such. Even in the early days of photography, images were manipulated by the available technology to create a “picture” that reflected the photographer’s vision. From darkroom techniques to digital photography the options have continuously expanded. My photographic work pushes the limits of photography into the world of surreal digital art and I often receive questions of “How did you do that?” and “Is that a photograph?” This article will highlight some of the visioning and techniques I used to create a surreal work of art, “Solstacia II” (above), from a camera image.

The Narcissist aka Donald the Flatulent

“The Narcissist aka Donald the Flatulent” (20″ x 54″) is a modern rendition of the mythological story of Narcissus, a handsome boy who falls in love with his reflection in a pond; eventually falling in and drowning. In this vision, there is nothing handsome about the narcissist. He is an ugly old man who demands attention creating chaos out of a peaceful world until his flames can be extinguished.

Visiting the Otavalo Indigenous Market

Otavalo is a small city situated at about 8300 ft altitude in the highlands of Ecuador. Its nearly 40,000 inhabitants are mostly indigenous people. On Saturdays, the city hosts a huge indigenous market selling everything from livestock to handmade textiles. The Otavalo indigenous people come to the market wearing traditional garments and jewelry. Their expressions and gestures tell a story of a different culture shaped by a traditional existence. This photostory focuses on the animal market where local farmers bring their livestock to sell in a very traditional way. Different areas are set up for poultry, lamb, pork, and beef. Rabbit and guinea pigs are also sold at the market. It can be sad to see families parting with livestock which may have become a pet knowing it will soon be slaughtered for food.

The images are best viewed in full screen mode.

A Day In The Sacred Valley Of The Incas

The trek to Machu Picchu begins in Cusco, Peru and traverses the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The road to Machu Picchu is long and scenic. The Sacred Valley is inhabited by many indigenous people of the Andes who still practice ancient rituals and dress in traditional style. The younger generation tends to break with tradition and embraces modern fashion.

This photostory presents black and white photography of landscapes and indigenous people in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. It is best viewed in full screen mode.

Galapagos Islands

Visiting the Galapagos Islands was an amazing adventure. I spent a week on an eight cabin catamaran and we were escorted to numerous sites in the islands. One benefit of being on a small vessel is that you spend no time getting to and from your daily excursion points. The vessel anchors right where you will be exploring and a dinghy is launched less than 5 minutes from your point of exploration. Each morning we were awakened at 6:00 am for breakfast with a 7:00 am departure. The daily activities usually started with a hike followed by a snorkel returning to the boat for lunch. The captain would occasionally move to another nearby bay during the early afternoon break. Afternoon activities included a snorkel and or hike from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm. We were back on board for dinner around 6:30 or 7:00 pm. We would travel to our next location as the sun was setting or during the night hours for a longer trek.
