Gabriel Isak’s melancholic silent dreams

Looking at the works of Swedish photographer Gabriel Isak, you can feel contrasting emotions. His photo manipulations depict isolated and lonely subjects lost in foggy, desolated backgrounds, with subtle details and the face usually covered by smoke, hair, birds or balloons. All these elements contribute to create a sort of surreal and melancholic yet tranquil, peaceful mood. Even when elements in motion are present in the scene, everything looks motionless, peacefully static. Recurring elements on Gabriel Isak’s photography are present, such as fog, birds, trees, oceans and seas. The colors are dark, cold. With all these mixing elements the viewer is transported in a melancholic silent dream, but if you let go any fear you’ll start slowly perceive the sense of tranquillity of Isak’s beautiful visions.
