It seems that artists like Laughlin must have felt very peripheral in their time. Were these hobbies? Passions?

He was called the first surreal photographer in America. Most of the collages are staged and then photographed. It makes for some very interesting work.

This is a great post! These are so interesting and yet, I feel depressed looking at them. You can’t (or I couldn’t at least) stop staring at them. Beautiful yet haunting. So cool! I thought I’d studied all the American surrealist photographers… Apparently not! Thank you for sharing this post :)

Thank you. I think we’ve had photography for over 150 years now. Amazing
