italian architect and photographer laurent rosset turns his dreams into fragments of reality. through photography and post-production manipulation, rosset creates surreal landscapes that hover between fantasy and tangibility. series such as ‘the sky is flat’ and ‘sleep (t)height’ blend images of human figures with the environments that surround them. for ‘the sky is flat’, warped natural and urban landscapes fold onto themselves; in ‘sleep (t)height’, panoramic scenery forms ‘blankets’ that wrap around bodies — both of which distort the viewer’s perspective of space.

‘since I was young, I was attracted by the fact that photography can transform every moment into something eternal,’ the artist describes. ‘when I see through my camera, I imagine how that picture could be more than what it is. with my edits, I try to bring the possibilities of dreams in everyday situations, making my pictures the key to enter in a new adventure. I believe that an image can be the beginning of an adventure or a dream and it can transform an ordinary situation into something extraordinary.’
