Kylie Woon’s Surreal Self-Portraits

Young photographer Kylie Woon has created a collection of wondrous self-portraits called Surreal-ity. Her images, which are all composites of two or more photographs, show her running and flying in fairytale-like scenes. Kylie describes her perspective, “When I am zoomed in, everything in the universe is dark except for the inside of my head. I feel my feelings with painful clarity, and I am obsessed. And selfish. The only thing that matters is what’s on my mind. To be zoomed in is to be consumed.” She goes on to say “When I am zoomed out, I am floating in space somewhere, looking down on earth which is the size of a glass marble… Like pieces of a puzzle, things just seem to fall into place. It’s a reassuring clarity.”
