Sur(reality)’s photographers work in vastly
different
styles, yet
echo each other in their definitive lack of pure
coincidence;
their art reveals laborious, ingenious
processes.

Poland’s Patrycja Orzechowska is a dreamer and
performer
who explores vision, subconsciousness, mystery,
space and
the
mind. The Cabinet collects her private
experiences,
producing
images of human nature in photographic cycles.

Nostalgic and melancholy, Czech photographer
Kamil
Vojnar’s
work explores corners of the soul sheltering
human emotions.
Life, death, freedom, restraint: such feelings speak
in Vojnar’s
images in personal, enigmatic ways.

Korean photographer Park Hong-Chun’s recent
work
consists of magical large-scale photographs
composed of
hundreds of 35mm contact prints, repetitions of
motifs such
as car plates (Seoul III) and city windows at
night
(Apartments).

Tokyo-based photographer Hideo Suzuki
constructs small,
meticulous photo-narratives. Based on Western
culture, they
beautifully communicate Eastern morality. Sun of
Eden

is
inspired by Adam and Eve, while Dorothy’s
Home
Economics:
Family Crisis in Doll’s House
portrays middle-
class
tragedy.

Jill and the Holiday Fair is a new series by
Toronto
photographer
Katyuska Doleatto. This modern-day fairytale sees
vintage
dolls
restyled and posed as celebrities, portraying
values imposed
upon young women as well as desire for and
submission
to these values.
