Like characters from a Haruki Murakami novel, that’s how I felt about the unbelievably vivid images from 21-year old, Wyatt McCollum. His photos knit reality and fantasy into one. When I look at each of them, I feel connected with solitude – a kind that does on breathes on the skin.
These photos are like open invites on playing viewer to intimate moments with the very self. Such golden moments irreplaceable by shared laughter.
The young photographer’s vivid imagination can be strongly felt in his photos. His works convey poetic narratives that bring you a different dimension – a place you sometimes visit when life gets heavy. His self-portraits inspire me to also put my wild imaginings into visual arts. Are you also currently venturing on surreal photography? This is high time for you to also share your out-of-this-world captures, out-of-the-box ideas. When I was 21, I remember writing a lot in between work hours. Ambient music and dark photos were major sources of inspiration for my poetry and prose. I really thing 21 is a beautiful age to bleed artistry.
