Federico Chiesa Disrupts Our Interpretation of the Familiar

Compelling and, in some cases, disturbing, these pictures by Italian photographer Federico Chiesa capture a variety of intricate situations occurring within a surreal environment. Revolving around the principle of the irrational or absurd, Federico Chiesa describes a narrative through the elements within his captures. The pictures, captured in stunning high definition, all contain elements -- emotional response, environment or object -- that disrupt what could otherwise be a fairly coherent representation of reality.

Whether it's an armored knight on a surfboard or a stereo with a set of internal organs spilling out, Federico Chiesa grounds the audience in the familiar and then disrupts that by distorting a specific quality, which disrupts the interpretation and relationship to a seemingly relateable scenario or existence.
