Qphoto-art is a collaborative effort between a Dutch father-and-son team who use the principles of Surrealism to create dynamic photo compilations of cityscapes and other terrains. Arjon Groeneweg and his son Jeffrey start their artistic process by taking multiple series of photos of a chosen subject to establish a baseline. They then select and digitally combine up to twenty inspiring images to create an entirely new perspective. What results are surrealistic images that give the viewer unique glimpses into often familiar urban landscapes.
Inspired by their travels to cities all over the world, Qphoto-art use Photoshop and a light room to manipulate their digital photos and then print them on various materials to create different effects and degrees of dimension. Their photographic images vibrate with energy as the viewer’s eye is pulled in multiple directions just trying to take it all in. In the end, what makes these photographs so compelling is the incongruous juxtaposition of diverse elements of landscape that lend fresh insights into our modern world.
