Adrian Limani Encapsulates His Imagination in a Lightbulb

Photographer Adrian Limani sets his surrealist art apart from the others by taking pictures from the world and boxing them into lightbulbs.

The self-taught photographer captures images from both still life and nature that not only catches his attention but, which also inspires him. At times, Limani infuses two or three images together to create one picture, which he then places inside the lightbulbs. For some, the lightbulb is considered to be a symbol for the beginning of new ideas or could even be interpreted in terms of the lightbulb being able to be illuminated and come alive. Resembling snow globes, the photos exhibit artifacts from real life that are tightly capsulated within glass domes.

Just like his pieces of art, Adrian Limani takes a very interesting viewpoint to making art. As he explains, "You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary."
