In Niko Photographisme‘s “The Robot Next Door” series, the artist depicts a world in which robotic creatures are among us. Blending analog materials with a bit of digital manipulation to create a surreal final product, the artist is able to create an intimate view of a sci-fi scenario. Depicting the figures taking part in everyday activities, the pieces carry a surprising vulnerability to match the futuristic concept.
“We live in a world of appearances,” the photographer says of the series. “In the real life and the digital world. We play roles, characters. But appearances are often false or deceptive.” The French artist describes his practice as “humorous, surreal, strange, always something impossible with a touch of credibility.”
