“Imagination is everything,” to street photographer Edas Wong, whose surreal and sometimes mischievous images make you stop and look… and smile.
THE surreal STREET PHOTOGRAPHY OF EDAS WONG
Hong Kong-based photographer Edas Wong describes himself as a daydreamer who loves imagination, and street photography is an excellent medium for him to express his whimsy. Street Photography magazine described his work as — ‘fascinating, slightly strange, a little off-the-wall, intriguing, and, sometimes, all of these rolled into one. He is a hunter, stalking his subjects, waiting with the patience and determination of a hungry wolf. Always ready to capture the unusual, near surreal moments of everyday life, with an eye for unique patterns and those hard-to-find, extraordinary shots in a constantly moving, often mundane, landscape.’ — Below, we selected ten odd and amusing “Wait… what?” images from Wong’s substantial portfolio.
