David Delin Blends the Contemporary and the Fantastical

David Delin’s work is the photographical equivalent of crossing Baz Luhrman with Ridley Scott in that his high-octane imagery combines modernist hipster-retro sensibilities with the sweeping scale of a big-budget Hollywood epic.

From religious symbolism, to powerfully evocative scenescapes of staggering scope, what makes David Delin stand above his contemporaries is the manner in which he blends the visceral and the high-minded. To remain unaffected by his work is a virtual impossibility. There is no such thing as a "neutral" impression of Delin’s work, and that is a very good thing.
