Pop Surrealism (All photos by Terry Ratner.)

By Terry Ratner / Special to the OB Rag

I’m a risk taker.

I’m brave to the point of being reckless at times.

Terry Ratner 10-2-15 01


When I shoot, I get totally out of myself.

Tatas & Torpedoes

It’s the closest I come to not existing.

Bird Lady

It’s a philosophical pursuit as much as a way of life.

Terry Ratner 10-2-15 05


Looking for pictures is speculative and liberating—a compulsive activity that distances me from the world as I contemplate and do my best to connect with it.

The “Pop Surrealism” photo is just like a strange painting coming to life. And everyone who spends any time at the beach knows the “Bird Lady.” Great captures. Keep it up!
