Cooper & Gorfer

 “...from the dream like parallel world of the Pre-Raphaelites, to the startling juxtapositions and suggestive manner of Surrealism”

Artist duo Cooper & Gorfer consists of American Sarah Cooper (1974) and Austrian Nina Gorfer (1979). Their photography exists at the intersection of contemporary photography and 18th and 19th century painting, relying on post-production techniques such as drawing, painting, collage making and Photoshop. They tell of their work: “Place and story are the catalysts of our work – transforming narrative and memories into image.” I say: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
