In the photographs Vincent Minor creates, images appear to derive more from dreams than reality. With the use of rich colors, dark settings and surreal environments these painterly portraits are built into narratives exploring themes on death, obsession, anxiety, solitude and escapism. These themes are then constructed into archetypes. Creating a world which bridges the gap between what seems impossible or fantastical into stories that are real and tangible to the viewer.
The use of objects and items within the work tend to stray from their intended use. Warped by imagination and unusual perspectives like placing an ocean in a cupboard, a man with an abnormally long whimsical beard, a large key for a small door, a subject escaping through a mirror from another dimension. And when the work leans on a more emotional direction, concealed faces will add mystery and allow the viewer to project their own interpretations of who the subject is while unordinary camera angles will convey a sense of intimacy and voyeurism.
Likened to haunting yet beautiful films or dark fairytales, the work aims to pose questions between our reality and imagination, infatuations and compulsions that often are born from our minds.
