Art Show: The Surrealist Portraits of Alexander Straulino

Part indiginous part surrealist, a clear example of Straulino’s genious. Image from Studio Straulino

Alexander Straulino’s photography has been a reoccurring appearance in the pages of Haper’s Bazaar, L’Officiel, and Vogue. But his work operates beyond the realm of editorial: in his images we see a perspective that seems almost painterly (and in some cases it is). Bodies and faces bear the intimacy of human interaction but also appear sculptural. There is so much to look at here with each photograph. I just can’t express how much I love his photography. Enjoy.

For those living in Germany, his work is currently on display at the Monika Mohr Gallerie in Hamburg.

This photo is one my favorites. I love that the face appears metallic even when in black and white. Image from Studio Straulino
