  • This is Phillipe Halsman’s Dali Atomicus. What do you see?
  • It took 28 tries to get this photograph ‘right’. You can see that the water is indeed thrown. It is not ‘fake water’.
  • No cats or surrealists were harmed during the making of this photograph. But please, be kind to your pets.
  • This is your task. But what is Magical Realism?
  • The term was first coined by art critic Franz Koh to refer to post-expressionist artwork that had an ‘inner magic’ - work that suggested there was more to it than meets the eye. “Christina’s World” by Andrew Wyeth is now considered a classic of Magic Realism.
  • Now however, Magic Realism is understood to suggest work in which the real world comes into contact with something that is supernatural or unbelievable.
  • This idea of something magic or supernatural coming into contact with the real world might be something that you’ve also seen in the movies.
  • But not to be confused with surrealism which implies something that is dreamlike and fully beyond our conscious reality.
  • How can we apply this idea to fast speed photography?
  • Using high speed photography, we are able to witness people and/or objects caught in mid air in a moment that goes by too fast to be captured by the naked eye.   How can you use this technique to create a scene of magical realism in your community?
  • If it was good enough for Halsman and Dali, its good enough for you!
