Vent Fischer says: "The connection between my photos and surrealism is that I am trying to recreate my dreams and my nightmares. Paris is the perfect model. It is filled with very old and well-preserved architecture. I can never grow tired of looking at its facades, windows, squares, roofs, street corners, monuments... I keep on rediscovering things, over and over again." Naturally, it's hard to imagine her dreams just by looking at these photos; I had thought that perhaps the connection to surrealism might come from the way that her photos play with what we expect "a photograph of Paris" to look like. The image above strikes me as such a traditional image, given the fact that the shapes of the buildings makes it possible to identify the city in which the photo was taken. At the same time, there is quite a lot of distance between this "traditional" image and the images that Vent Fischer creates.
