ANNA DEVÍS &
Although it may seem surprising or hard to believe, besides some basic image processing, Anna and Daniel create these surreal scenes without the use of photo-editing software. Instead, they carefully set the scene in real life using all sorts of everyday objects, unexpected locations, and tons of natural light.
Set in cities from all over the world and full of striking locations, clean shapes, and pastel colors, these images do not only speak of abstraction, elegance, and simplicity. As a result of their inventive use of everyday objects and worldly locations, their work also invites us to rediscover our own surroundings with a fresh new look. Walls, streets, and facades, usually relegated to the background, become the absolute protagonists of these whimsical photographs through the eyes of this creative duo tirelessly seeking to draw a smile on our faces. As a matter of fact, those of Daniel Rueda and Anna Devís are photographs that undoubtedly transmit joy and optimism, encouraging us, as the Monty Python would sing, to look at the bright side of life.
