The Seven Surrealistic Sundays of Summer
The Seven Surrealistic Sundays of Summer Series
Award-winning Photographer and Photo Editor David Robert draws inspiration from Nevada desert sand dunes, playas, dramatic sunsets, skies, and Reno’s iconic skyline to create otherworldly dreamscapes. An internationally published concert photographer, Robert has immersed himself in myriad niches and genres throughout his creative career—a departure from his day job as a photojournalist/ photo editor for the Reno News & Review, and owner of Biggest Little City Photography.
“The Seven Surrealistic Sundays of Summer Series” represents his foray into the hypnagogic surrealistic realm, the result of his “digital doodles” on Sunday afternoons throughout the summers of 2018-2022. The project began to take form as the seven original images multiplied to over 20 mind-bending images. He credits his exposure to the music industry and unusual album covers for his inspiration, especially Hipgnosis, the graphic art group that created many of the iconic Pink Floyd album covers. Some of the works are named after songs. Robert’s devotion to recycling, upcycling and repurposing is represented here as many of the works are framed and matted with reused, discarded, or repurposed products.
