These Alex Kisilevich Works are Eccentric

Some people prefer their photography to capture idyllic scenes -- sunsets, children laughing, flowers blowing in the wind -- while others have tastes that are more in line with these Alex Kisilevich Works.

The photographs depict surreal scenes that will leave many people scratching their heads. In one frame, two women are seen with their backs facing the viewer. They are connected by a mutual coif that arcs between them like a roman doorway. Similarly, another photograph portrays a pair of crutches laying against a wall, slightly to their right is a leg brace filled with floor-tiles.

In many ways, the series is reminiscent of a Magritte painting. Like the great surrealist, Kisilevich arranges familiar everyday objects and materials in such a way that they become unfamiliar and even jarring.
