Stunning Surreal World Art

These Surreal Captures Blend Real World Beauty with Elements of Fantasy

— June 27, 2013 — Tech
These lovely surreal photographs by artist Stephen Criscolo blend the beauty of the real world with striking elements of fantasy. Some of these captures feature colorful smoke, while others include luminous critters.

Half of these stunning shots are set in day light while the rest are done at night; some are even done underwater. The stunning daytime captures are set in a wooded area. In one shot, an opened gift box sitting in the grass is releasing pink smoke. In another shot, a man seems to be walking along a sideways tree. One of the most eye-catching shots in this series features a ballerina-like woman who is surrounded by glowing jellyfish and seems to be a fish herself.
