Mind Bending Surreal Photography

Surrealism is a niche art field, that combines reality with fantasy in a noticeably bizarre way that seems as though the real world has taken on some dreamlike or strange properties.

Perhaps best known in the field of surrealist art is Salvador Dali, but other artists such as Chirico and Max Ersnt also helped define the movement in art, which also combines with philosophy to combine dream and reality seamlessly in an effort to express the subconscious.

In photography, a variety of techniques can be employed, such as photomanipulation, double exposure, creative staging and forced perspective, to create a surreal photograph:
