George Platt Lynes, photograph of Salvador Dali 1939
The unusual combination with naked model and a live lobster is so unexpected, and is probably why it's a surrealist photography. Surrealists often used live animal cooperated into their work. There's probably a reason behind each animal but for me, I think the use of animal really bring something fresh to the viewers. A model poses in front of a studio white backdrop can sometimes be boring, but by bringing something unique like wild animal into the scene can make so much different. I could be editing animals into any images I've created or photographed in this project to add the element of unusualness of surrealism.
