The work of Gabriel Isak is quiet, peaceful and incredibly melancholy. The latter provides a cathartic release for viewers, especially for those who engage in a sense of reflection -- which Gabriel Isak appears to encourage through his surreal photography. Dark and dreamy, his models remain faceless as well, allowing people to project themselves into them as much as they can.

Isolated within nature, Gabriel Isak's subjects appear to question the world around them. In terms of his inspiration, he says, "Whenever I create an image, I mostly start with some sort of brainstorming, whether it is writing down words, listening to music and drawing down the vision that appears, or a place I dreamt about. I also get very inspired by locations and always try to find interesting but simple sceneries that I can use in my imagery."
