Conor Culver Profile

Conor Culver

I am from United States
Member since: Tuesday, December 9, 2014
Forever intrigued with art’s ability to challenge senses of reality, Conor Culver combines photography and digital design to create captivating surrealist images. Born and raised in the colorful state of Colorado, Conor is a graduate of The University of Colorado Denver with a B.F.A. focusing dually on photography and digital design.
Conor was first drawn into the hidden wonders of the sea after earning his scuba certification at the age of 12. His journey with photography began soon after as he began to capture an underwater world; a place that still influences him today. After exploring the allure of fine art photography in college, Conor began to blend different images together both in photoshop and in the darkroom, experimenting with various methods. His haunting collection ‘Characters We Used to Know’ and the enchanting ‘Underwater Surrealism’ highlight the dreamlike realities he creates, using both digital photography and the darkroom.
