Ronen Goldman is a conceptual photographer and artists based from Tel Aviv. In his most recent personal project, The Surrealistic Pillow, he takes us through the everyday real events and objects and adds more than a touch of surreal quirk and imagination to create images which are truly surrealistic.

The series is a result of a six-year project to catalog fragments of Goldman’s dream life through illusion, clever camera work, and a touch of skill in post-production.

He told Lost At E Minor that in both his personal and commercial projects, he finds true pleasure of conceptual photography in ‘taking something abstract and non-concrete and transforming it into a twisted and meaningful reality of its own’.

‘In both my personal and commercial projects, that core goal remains the same. I convey stories, breathe life into concepts and externalise emotions through surreal and conceptual images’.
