Hold on to your head: Matt Wisniewski's surrealist portraits will blow your mind

Posted by James Cartwright,

Channeling the beautiful surrealist abstractions of John Stezaker is 22 year-old New Yorker Matt Wisniewski. Like his legendary predecessor, Matt constructs mind-bending collages that fuse portraiture and landscape photography to beguiling effect; recreating the vastness of a mountain range within the confines of a human head and allowing the sea to flow like delicate tresses round the shoulders of his subject. Unlike Stezaker, Matt uses digital techniques in place of traditional cut and paste allowing a greater level of finesse, but no less visual punch.
