From his numerous photographs along the way was born his flying houses series, a collection of fantastical buildings, homes, tents and trailers removed from their backgrounds and suspended in the sky as if permanently airborne. laurent-4

Chasing the Light is an art expedition led by artist Zaria Forman that draws inspiration from breathtaking geography to create equally striking art.

The project began in August 2012 when Forman sought to fulfill her late mother Rena’s wish to take an Arctic voyage similar to the one American painter William Bradford took in 1869. In fact, it was Forman’s mother, a painter herself, who originally conceived of the artistic journey.zariaformanchangingthelight5 zariaformanchangingthelight7

The artist says, “My hope is that these drawings bring awareness, and invite viewers to share the urgency in a hopeful and meaningful way. Art can facilitate a deeper understanding of any crisis, helping us find meaning and optimism in shifting landscapes.”



As a continuation of her work addressing climate change, Forman is currently in the Maldives for the month. She explains, “As the lowest-lying country in the world, the Maldives will likely be the first nation submerged by rising seas.”

Surrealism, we love you so! Today we’re delighted to bring you the work of photographer Brittney Meyer. 

Using sweets and mirrors, she captures food in odd moments of movement: frozen, collaged, and seemingly misplaced. The fruit and sweets seem to be animated, personified, and almost giddy!
