Talented French photographer Romain Laurent’s recent project L’Horizon is a series of surreal images that features a floating surfer who is seemingly lost on the busy streets of Manhattan, New York. Preoccupied crowds pass by without interest as the out-of-place surfer experiences calm moments before riding the next big wave.

In these moments, the displaced surfer seems to find sanctuary within the rush of everyday life. Like in most of his work, Laurent uses digital post-production to play with the idea of certainty and to challenge the idea of “normal” expectations.
