Hugh Burden photographer - about these images

'... particular and peculiar things, places, unusual juxtapositions always catch my attention in that they strike a chord, they give a feeling, an impulse; I hear them say "Stop... Look... I have to be photographed." Obeying this compulsion to make the photographs is an adventure, enjoyable and absorbing. By submitting to serendipity I go with the flow and explore the possibilities.

Here are examples loosely curated under the title of "Surreal" in the most part, they are unconnected random singular images'
