Who isn’t a fan of surreal photography? Right? Surreal Photography mesmerizes almost everyone. It is about creating a world of imagination that goes beyond the physical world. And Atlanta-based creative director and Instagram star Stephen McMennamy is known as a champion of combining photos of unrelated items to create a collection of playfully surreal scenes.
Stephen McMennamy’s #combophoto project takes two pictures to align them as two halves for a quirky whole which ultimately produces a resulting series that is as joyful as it is thought-provoking. Stephen summarised his process to PetaPixel: “It’s really just from looking around and seeing what things are out in the world might make for an interesting fit or what would make for a nice contrast once combined”.
McMennamy’s whimsical mash-ups visualize his childlike sense of imagination. From a literal banana boat to a half-bird half-airplane, his collection is adored by 474K followers from around the globe. Scroll on to see some of his amazing photo mash-ups in our curated list below and enjoy peeps!
