Deconstructing the Constructed

Few things I love as much as constructed photography. I confess I don't give ordinary photography enough credit as I feel it could never reach the perfection that the constructed category achieves. Frankly, when I was young I was more into digital paintings. At first I was inlove with the delirious works of Mark Ryden and Luis Royo but eventually I found that photography does have its points.One of the first photographers I stumbled upon, a few years back, was Alex Prager, actually on one of his photos from the 'The Big Valley' collection. I was sold right there and then. He's currently working on his latest presentation, Week-End and you can see a preview of it on his website.

Over time I've discovered more and more talented photographers, most of which made me wish
I had lenses for eyes. Oh how I'd love to pick the brains of these people!

Holger Pooten, who is bordering on genious, minus his Nike campaign for which I resented him for a while. But the guy is bringing new definitions to the word 'constructed', so I'll forgive him for now.

Last but not least, not a photographer but a Stylist. The Alice in Wonderland theme was abused so much lately that I was dreading on seeing another approach to it. But I have to give it to Nini Gallong and her 'Clown in Wonderland' vision (did I ever mention I am and forever will be terrified of clowns? It's all about that damn 'It' movie). Careful, nightmares may or may not be included.
