Among the thousands of posts we have shared on our social media, the photographs of Vikram Kushwah have been the most shared and viewed content with a difference. The commercial and art photographer, currently based in London, has captivated hundreds of thousands of online readers with his magically surreal images.

What is most peculiar about his work is his way of challenging reality, showing a parallel existence that is simpler and at the same time extraordinary. In his scenes modernity is not present, nor is life mundane. Instead, surrealism is part of everyday life.

In his latest work, Memoirs of lost time, the sense of surreal romanticism is strengthened. His way of incorporating surreal moments makes them seem plausible, as if life were truly like the scenes he creates. The melancholic nature of the images is also a result of the muted colours and the stillness they transmit. Here the influence of British culture and dark fairy tale stories is still visible and offers a perfect compliment to his previous work.
