Spanish photographer Antonio Mora fuses standard portraits with landscape, animal, and abstract photography, resulting in extraordinary combinations. His ongoing Dream Portraits transform two separate images by combining them into one frame and thereby reconfiguring their visual power.
Playing with opacity and composition, Mora’s keen eye finds a likeness in unlikely pairs, turning the limbs of a tree into an extension of a persons face or the profile of a woman into a beautiful tidal wave. Each image holds its own unique and complementary union of visual elements.
Ultimately, the pairings result in a dreamy blend of ideas. Caught somewhere between two thoughts, the images represent a sort of transitioning or in-between phase of consciousness. There’s a beautiful mystery to Mora’s photography that is both curiously mind-boggling and entrancing.
