Photographer Morgan Hill-Murphy and stylist Kat Silva find inspiration for this story in the the work of Surrealist artists, and borrow the title from the 1927 eponymous painting by Salvador Dali.

The main trope of their visual narrative is the utopia of escape and liberation through imaginary worlds, doubled by the experience of downfall, when reality strikes back and utopia is replaced by deception. This contrast is prevalent in their work – chromatic and geometrical. Shape and colour follow and counter one another, in a lively juxtaposition of similitude and contradiction.
