Dreaming with Damian Russell

Sometimes when the world is grey and mundane you need a dose of hyper reality to jolt your senses. Photographer Damian Russell did just that to me today. My senses are overloaded with the saturated colour, the clarity, the light. There is something unreal about the composition. The photos transport you to a fantasy world of beautiful rooms and fabulous lives. I want to be there, to own these spaces, to move from the mundane to the dream. Damian just through his lens makes me feel that way.

Ooh, I remember some of these as stand-out images from World of Interiors. Him and Faye Toogood is a fabulous combination.

If I had any period panelling in my home I would right now be painting exuberantly colourful designs on it.

Amazing blasts of colour! London is a little grey at the moment.
I am with you, want to be there too.
Beautiful post Jo.

I love the lights above the bed, but the practical side of me is saying that they're hung far too low--you couldn't have any decent sex without someone bumping their head!

Great photos! I like the black and white pick and the picture just below...I really love that the doors are also covered in this very cool mural. This photographer turned ordinary "stuff" into beautiful!
