Surrealism is often seen as more of an painter’s style rather than a photographer’s. Randy Scott Slavin turns that concept on it’s head with his unique, surrealistic style of extreme panoramic photography.

Such locations include places as diverse as Downtown Manhattan, the giant redwood trees of the Big Sur in California and the Florida Everglades.
