Subtly Surreal Photography
This Scott Newett Photography is Strange

Melbourne-based conceptual photographer Scott Newett captures scenes that are at once surreal and familiar. This is because the photographer portrays scenes that have been experienced by most people—walking past a window display, playing ping pong or squash—but emphasizes subtle details such as facial expressions and lighting that seem out of place in such familiar situations.

One way of achieving a surreal feeling or aesthetic is by creating fantastic scenes interlaced with ordinary objects; this technique is in the style of Dali. Another method is to depict more everyday scenes, but also emphasize something that is askew or not quite fitting with such scenes; this is more in the tradition of Magritte. Newett’s work falls into the latter as they are subtle and evocative.
