Uplifted by Loreal Prystaj
The feeling of vertigo is rare in the what-you-see-is-what-you-get photography world, until you see Loreal Prystaj‘s work. I met Loreal at an opening in Dumbo and instantly fell in love with her work. As if Moving in a different world, the work accelerates what you think you know to a place changed by movement, as though your next step toward the gallery wall may not land on solid ground.
A personality as bold as the work itself, Loreal has a gravity of her own. I contacted her about living in a different plane and sharing her Self portrait Nudes, Especially with the “being” series!
Reality is perception, and my perception of the world around me becomes reality through my photographs. I find myself seeing illusions in my head, that when I pick up a camera the world around me disappears, and I am able to create my thoughts and ideas into reality instantly, with one click of a button. Being the only one who knows exactly what is in my mind, I have become part of my own masterpieces; to fulfill my imagination.
It reminds me of the John Mayer song, Gravity, “…Oh gravity, stay the hell away from me”.
