Jim Kazanjian’s surreal landscapes offer phantasmagoric visions of a where-is-this world, defined by impossibly complex architecture and M.C.Escher-esque black-and-white graphics. Inspired by the imaginary realms of cult author H.P. Lovecraft—whose wild, cosmic short stories set the mold for much of the 20th century’s best science fiction—Kazanjian’s aim is to redress the “misunderstanding that photography has a kind of built-in objectivity…to defamiliarize the familiar.” Kazanjian’s images are digitally manipulated composites made from photographs he finds online. Currently, he has an archive of more than 25,000 high resolution photos for use as source material. The number of found images that make up one of his works, can vary but usually number around 30. On the more complex pieces he has used over 50 images.
