Gryphon Halley is an American fine-art photographer currently based in Chicago, IL. His work explores the emotions tied to color through conceptual landscapes and surrealist portraiture. Often his work focuses on mixing what is reality and what is a dream. Through his images, Gryphon hopes to depict his own sense of reality through his emotions, dreams, and distant memories rather than what is factual. He takes a heavy sense of inspiration from his emotional experience, such as love, solitude, and grief.
