Budapest, Hungary-based photographer Sarolta Bán recently released a new set of images that all have that surreal quality she's become known for. Bán's photo manipulations never cease to amaze us both for their creativity and the way they stretch the imagination. The self-taught artist has now been a part of numerous art exhibitions all around the world including the US, France, Poland, Hungary, Japan and Ireland.
This new set includes one of an old man and a young boy walking hand in hand through a misty forest of giant paint brush trees. The bristles on the brushes reach high up in the sky, creating the fluffy white clouds overhead.
As for its meaning? Like all her pieces, that's left up for you to decide. "In 2007 I discovered digital photo manipulations and I quickly fell in love with it, it is like playing and it gives almost unlimited possibilities to develop various ideas," Bán states. "I like using ordinary elements and by combining them, I can give them various stories, personalities. Objects and little things are important for me. I think that they have own stories, probably this is the reason why I love what I do. I hope that the meanings of my pictures are never too limited, are open in some way, each viewer can transform them into a personal aspect."
