Photographer Sean Mundy Mixes Symbolisim and Surrealisim To Excellent Effect

Sean Mundy

Canadian photographer Sean Mundy may only be 22 but boy can he take photographs! A native of Montreal, Mundy’s work draws heavily from iconography, symbolism and the surreal. There’s something cinematic in his images and I love that they all seem to tell a story, even if the story is one we don’t quite understand.

Mundy utilizes digital art to construct his work yet this never comes across as showy or heavy-handed. His digital trickery only serves the work and the images he constructs. Instead of offering one answer to the meaning behind his photographs, Mundy prefers to leave his images open to interpretation; he allows for the viewer to add their own meaning to this work.

For me it’s the simplicity and the elegance in his imagery that I love and I think many of his photographs have a fantastically macabre tone. You can see more from Mundy on his Tumblr.
