Amazing colorful photography by Sandy Skoglund

Sandy Skoglud is famous by her artistic photography. Decades before Photoshop was available, American artist Sandy Skoglund started creating surrealist images by building incredibly elaborate sets, a process which took months to complete. Her works are characterized by an overwhelming amount of one object and either bright, contrasting colors or a monochromatic color scheme.

Skoglund studied studio art and art history and she started working as a conceptual artist, dealing with repetitive, process-oriented art production through the techniques of mark-making and photocopying.

In the late seventies the artist desire to document conceptual ideas led her to teach herself photography.

This developing interest in photographic technique became fused with her interest in popular culture and commercial picture making strategies, resulting in the directorial tableau work she is known for today.
