One way to shoot surreal photographs is to capture things where they don’t ordinarily belong, whether it’s glowing cubes in a forest or houses and babies floating in mid-air. Often this type of image is done using photo manipulation, but that’s not true of the photos in artist Joy Umali’s project titled Ladders. Umali hauled a number of distorted metal ladders onto Rodeo Beach in San Francisco, and then had photographer Walter Kitundu photograph the scene.
It’s interesting how something so simple as a ladder can look so out of place when sticking out of the sand on a beach.
You can find more of these photographs over on the project’s Behance page.
