The visual universe of Kim Keever is one of mysterious and sometimes foreboding majesty – a new iteration of surrealism. We see his landscapes as a place that is as familiar as it is foreign, seductive enough to draw us in despite any suspicions of potential danger.

The answer is simple genius, as is most great art. These stunning and weird compositions are photographs of dioramas staged in a fish tank. Who would have thought?! Well, Kim Keever did. Once you see the set-up, it all makes sense yet the photos don’t lose an ounce of their whimsy. For me, they became all the more intriguing once I knew their origins; like seeing the reveal of a magic trick and loving it all the more for its brilliance.
