With travel options still limited for the time being, I've resorted to inventing some new takes on familiar locations to explore. Surreal Alberta is a digital composite art series in which I'm utilizing elements from my library of professional travel photography to create fantasized / surrealist scenes of some of Alberta's most recognizable landscapes and attractions.
Launched earlier this week on the @editingluke Instagram account, the debut image of my surrealist series quickly became my most liked post of 2021 (so far) and reached more than 170,000 profiles in 48 hours. While the popularity and new art prints are a nice byproduct of this creative departure, I think the reality is that we could all just use a little escape these days.
Stay tuned as the series continues with new additions from around the province.
