Joe Baran

Technically, the images of photographer Joe Baran are perfectly tuned. The sky is just the right color of dusk, the corners of the room are filled softly with light, and the composition maintains a perfect blend of positive and negative space. This technical skill creates a cinematic scene of unease, as though we’re catching each shot as a frame from a longer movement. And it’s that potential, the next scene, that captures us. Showcasing a fascination of contrasting the mundane with the surreal—and perhaps even the invasion of planet Earth!—there’s always something that makes us want to find out what happens next.
