In-Focus: Surreal Photography by Tommy Ingberg

The artist that has a great vision and an amazing passion:

I am an aspiring photographer / visual artist based in Upplands Väsby, just north of Stockholm, Sweden.
As long, I can remember I have been preoccupied with photography. When I was 15 years old, I got my first system camera, a Praktica with two lenses.

What followed were several years of intensive photography but it was first when I could afford a digital camera that I really started to develop, thanks to the fact that I could see the result directly in the camera. Here is a little about the project itself:

For me, surrealism is about trying to explain something abstract like a feeling or a thought, expressing the subconscious with a picture. The Reality Rearranged series is my first try at describing reality trough surrealism. During the two and a half years I worked on the series I used my own inner life, thoughts and feelings as seeds to my pictures. In that, sense the work is very personal, almost like a visual diary. Despite this subjectiveness in the process, I hope that the work can engage the viewer in hers or his own terms. I want the viewer to produce hers or his own questions and answers when looking at the pictures, my own interpretations are irrelevant in this context.
