A Surreal Journey With Sarah Elise Abramson

Blurring the line between dreams and reality, the images gathered in ‘Parallels’ tell the story of the ‘other place’, acquainting the viewer with the unknown.

Working both as a curator and photographer, Sarah Elise Abramson focuses on discovering the eccentric beauty in the things most people overlook. Collaborating with the likes of Susan Worsham, Taso Papadakis and David LaChapelle, American photographer has defined her own unique visual language to search the everyday surrealism. In ‘Parallels’, Abramson uses her excellent sensibility for color photography to walk the viewer throught the ethereal world of fantasies, subconscious thoughts and inherent truths. In a statemnent to the series, the artist says: “There is an enigmatic and mystifying place that every person that’s ever lived has visited, and does so with an obscure regularity that we take for granted as conscious beings. The realm of our dreams is one with which we are all familiar, where elucidation occurs as we are suddenly granted access to our innermost thoughts, and where reality seems as distant from us as answers to our most difficult problems are during our day to day.”
