Fave Foto Friday: Scott Mutter's "More Perfect World"

For thirty years, Scott Mutter employed classic photomontage techniques to create a world of his own -- a more perfect world. The hallmark of Mutter's remarkable imagery is the distinct sense that the elements of each picture belong together, even though the combination may violate the laws of physics. These photographs, which Scott called "Surrational Images," have a poetic quality that invites highly personal interpretations.They are provocative as well as evocative.

In my humble opinion, these are some incredible, mind bending works!

"The light of the heavens is the light that shines on all below."

Scott Mutter chose this exhibition for the debut of "Chandelier". It was presented here for the first time in 2004.

The artist created the following "lyric" to accompany the poster publication of this image: "Time Travelers".

We come from beyond,
and we go from whence we came,
courting the hands of time

We are bound by nothing
so much as our imagination.

"Untitled".

Pax, the photomontage of Scott Mutter's works are one of the reasons I enjoy visiting your Blog. Very educational, for me. I think the title for the last one should be named "Stilts" it reminds me of Grimm's fairy tale of Rumpelstiltskins, I guess it's the road that appears to be held up by stilts.
