The adjective surreal comes from surrealism, an artistic movement that conglomerated images, writing, painting, and other artistic disciplines, which often contained irrational and disconnected images. That is why the surreal describes a strange mixture of elements, often discordant and seemingly meaningless. Images can be surreal, like the watches in Salvador Dalí’s paintings as well as in some weird and dreamlike moments of everyday life.
We may say that Street photography has always had that influence: from the classic images of Eliott Erwitt to our days with photographers like Siegfried Hansen or Tavepong Pratoomwong. In this issue, we present 101 talented street photographers celebrating the excellence through a visual language in street photography. These contemporary photographers come from 31 countries of five continents. Our aim is that you might get inspiration through their work. You will discover a great variety of photographers and their images presented in these pages on the theme Surreal.
