There’s a powerful quote by Salvador Dalí on the website of Matthias Lueger, a fine-art photographer living and working in Vienna, Austria. It says:
“One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams.”
The quote is a perfect framework for Mathhias’ eerie photography. In his haunting portraits Mathhias is looking for a deeper layer of our reality, exploring topics like illusions, dreams and nightmares. The resulting photos are stunning: high in contrast, filled with movement and mystery and an eerie, mysterious vibe I adore.
Thanks for reading! What do you think of Matthias’ work?
