Logan Zillmer is an American photographer who offers to reveal every day of the year one of his shots. Not unlike Magritte and surrealism, the artist offers us images of high quality with a selection of shots out among 365 to discover in the future. Conceptual and Fine Art Photographer from the Midwest.
Zillmer’s creative impulse has only grown since his 365 Photo Challenge ended in April. His latest photo, Untitled (Spur Series no. 3), features a man looking toward a shining square suspended over the horizon. His making-of photos show how he creates the shining square effect: Zillmer photographed an actual person holding a reflector, rather than creating a completely digital object. Prompted by the recent birth of his twins, he felt compelled to publish the image immediately. “A lot of people see [children] as the beginning of the end of one’s artistic life,” he writes in the image description. “I see it as the opposite, an inspiration to create more and better art. A spur to keep going.”
While some of his images convey ideas of isolation, such as The Trial, and corporate conformity, like untitled, we expect to see Zillmer to capture the surreal side of child-rearing in classic creative form.
