Gathering Paradise (1991) by Sandy Skoglund.

Decades before Photoshop was available, American artist Sandy Skoglund started creating surrealist images by building incredibly elaborate sets, a process which took months to complete.

Her works are characterized by an overwhelming amount of one object and either bright, contrasting colors or a monochromatic color scheme.

She is one of the few artists recognized worldwide, who starting her career as a photographer, has been able to illustrate intimate contexts in a spontaneous and imaginative way, starting from everyday, rural and social ideals.

Sandy Skoglund is one of the most original photographers I know.

Still active, she became known as conceptual and visual artist in the 80s and 90s.

I think she resides in New York. I would love to meet her someday.
