The Daily Surrealism Of Photographer Isabel Val

Picture of Tara Jessop
Updated: 13 December 2015
By Anna Jauhola and Tara Jessop

Barcelona born photographer Isabel Val started her career as a reporter for the likes of Ruta 66 and other music magazines. It wasn’t long before she discovered her passion for experimenting with different techniques in film photography to create dreamy, surreal atmospheres. This series, entitled ‘Surrealismo Cotidiano’, roughly translated as ‘daily surrealism’, was produced using black and white film. The negatives were then painted with watercolors. The once recognisable scenes of daily life are transformed – we enter a dream world, somewhere between the ordinary and the fantasy. Here, the photos are simply captioned with their corresponding number in the series, appearing in no particular order.
