We absolutely love every single surreal photographer/artist that we write about, but much of their work tends to be rather melancholy or down-right dark. Not so with German art director Robert Jahns (a.k.a. Nois7 on Instagram), whose beautiful and adventurous images will inspire you and brighten your day.

His images are surreal, but many of them are only subtly dream-like or unreal – it all looks like a normal photograph until you spot that one mystical detail that takes his image into the realm of fantasy. And if the images aren’t enough to brighten your day, the inspiring quotes that accompany most of his images might.

He shares his images with the world through Instagram and Flickr. On Instagram alone, he has more than 355,000 followers. On his website, he also offers some of his images as free backgrounds for smart phone users and offers a book of his photos for sale.
