P H O T O G R A P H Y - S T Y L E Creating beautiful strange worlds, boosting them with sometimes surreal dimensions, using extreme fashion styling and props. Dreamy and languid light, combined with some bokeh on the way.
Matthew Albanese began his Strange Worlds project in 2008, he says, it was very much about “tricking the eye.” “I would describe the photography that I do as small scale dioramas that I build by hand out of everyday, simple, mundane materials and transform them into an image through the lens of my camera making them look hyper-realistic. I’ve used ostrich feathers to create willow trees. I’ve used steel wool to create a tornado. Nothing is off limits.”
