Caras Ionut is a Romanian digital artist and photographer who has a rich portfolio with outstanding surreal photos that inspire dream-like memories and fantasies. He describes himself as a ‘photo mechanic’ as he blends the everyday objects with the unusual using Photoshop. His use of soft colors and cloudy atmospheric effects helps us imagine that we’re experiencing someone’s dream.

Ionut says that his imagination and his work are captivated by dreams and by the autumn and winter seasons. He says he also likes “to visit the darker side of what people may see of dreams, not necessarily what one would see as negative, but possibly a dream that one could not quite understand or may feel alone.”

Besides showcasing his beautiful works on his website, Ionut also offers numerous Photoshop tutorials and classes. You should check it out to if you like to like his works and to learn more about photo manipulations.

Weightlessness by Adeline Mai

The Weightlessness photography project by Adeline Mai is a series showcasing human form suspended and floating underwater. The subjects float weightlessly as if immersed in a dream of warm tones and open spaces. In these photos, the subjects can easily twist and maneuver their body into unique and visually interesting positions. Mai’s photo project is different from other underwater projects because she used warm colors instead ofthe usual blues and greens that we are used to seeing water as.

Adelina Mai lives in Paris and at 22 is very successful. She has shot foe prestigious magazines like Envy Magazine, Grazia Magazine, Muteen Magazine and many more. She was also featured on the French Vogue website for her shot of Rupert Grint that was featured in THAT magazine.

The Dreamkeepers by Polixeni Papapetrou

The Dreamkeepers photography project by Polixeni Papapetrou explores an unknown filled with dreams, fears and hopes. Papapetrou created a space for transformation for the children as they transitioned from childhood to adolescence. This space is part fantasy and part reality.

Papapetrou’s photography practice has involved collaboration with her children and their friends for over a decade. The subjects in this photo project are her own children, aged 13 and 15. She became interested in reflecting upon the transition of one phase of life to another. In this project, Papapetrou used the technique of collapsing the life cycle into one body. It is both a representation of youth and the aged and a meditation on being itself.
