Bizarre photo manipulations juxtapose the worlds of dreams and nightmares

Creating bizarre photographical manipulations of animals, photographer Sarah DeRemer has changed the way we look at nature. Her strange and sometimes disturbing photographs combine animals with all sorts of objects, from food to balloons.

‘Surreal Experiments’ introduces hybrid creatures using an eerie dark black and white filter that casts ominous and often frightening shadows. Juxtaposing the reality of the world around us with fantastical elements, DeRemer taps into our subconscious, showing part dream and part nightmare.

Whether it's the friendly manatee swimming by your back door or the army of terrifying penguin china dolls, the photographer gives her creations the potential of life within our imaginations.
