Photographer Karl Dmitri Bishop was born and lives in Cambridge, United Kingdom. His shots are highly constructed and processed, with each feeling more akin to a painting; the elaborate veils that shroud each subject lend them their intangible quality of otherworldliness.
How did you get started?
I’ve always been a hoarder of still images. From a young age I would collect magazine cut-outs, postcards, album covers, anything that was pleasing to my eye. It all started in a far away mystic land, with a reflection in water on top of a misty mountain, actually!
Which is your favorite master of photography?
William Mumler, I adore the spiritualist photography movement in the 1860’s which influenced other great photographers such as Man Ray and Francesca Woodman.
You have a white gallery wall for yourself, what would you display?
Something dreamy or unfamiliar. It’s all about the facts these days, there’s no mystery or magic left any more. Why not let your imagination run wild? I like darker theme’s, it’s yet to be explored.
