Derrick is one of the most surrealist photographers on Flickr.

There is more said by Derrick's photos than in an English dictionary. Sometimes, when we cannot find the words, Derrick finds the meaning with his photos. Truly a beautiful soul. Thank you. *heart*

It's not easy to write you a testimonial. I don't know how to start. Words can't translate what I feel while admiring your art. I love your mind-heart-eye sensibility. Your genius is present in every single detail you capture. What you do, it's like a punch on the stomach , a jurney through the human condition(s). L… Read more

I really don't think I can EVER explain how brilliant you are, so I will just say that you have one damn amazing brain, my friend. I am truly glad you found me so that I could find you.

I'm not exactly sure why I haven't written one o' these for you before, but without going into grandiose technical ramblings: your stuff basically embodies much of consumes me so much in (conceptual) photography. Each image is so fuckin much more than the sum of its aesthetic parts, and you are a gorgeously terrifying storyteller. Keep shooting of course, because you are a surreal delight to the retina.

DerrickT - He is our golden pinecone. :))

Derrick is simply a treasure. A surrealist in the best sense of the word; one who can see with depth, richness, seriousness and tenderness - yet fully understands the total horrifying absurdity of life.

Derrick is simply a treasure. A surrealist in the best sense of the word; one who can see with depth, richness, seriousness and tenderness - yet fully understands the total horrifying absurdity of life. The comments he leaves are thoughtful, and always lift my spirits. It is people like Derrick who give me real hope for humanity. Flickr is really lucky to have him... And dang!! He is so talented!!!!

If I had the ability to express my (quite) extreme feelings of awe and pure amazement when I view any of Derrick's photos, and experience his refreshing, thought-provoking perspective and point-of-view, the ever-striking presence of wonderful thoughts and words bringing to life, to meaning (as if they didn't already posses it) these incredible images, or when I read the heart-warming, smile-worthy comments he so graciously leaves for me. Believe me, I would.

I’ve always think that Derrick is good and creative with words, but when I see his pictures, I can’t stop thinking about his world and mind. His portraits –full of moving and sensitive faces- are tempting and seductive; is like they are about to jump out of the frame and paint your own landscape with a new sense, a weird and charming one. He and his powerful world make me think about movies, literature, moments and life. He is simple but complex... complex but simple. He has the hand of a painter and the eye of a writer. Besides, he is one of the kindest and encouraging persons I’ve ever met here. And that’s not minor. So, please, go and take a rest on his pictures. You’ll feel refreshed.

Oh thank bloody God that Derrick is here to make sense of the disarray that is called life.. out of the chaos that is the mundane, you stumble upon DT's universe, where -although grammatically correct (I think. wait, no.. can't make bets on this one)- words and images don't exactly run parallel to each other.

Oh thank bloody God that Derrick is here to make sense of the disarray that is called life.. out of the chaos that is the mundane, you stumble upon DT's universe, where -although grammatically correct (I think. wait, no.. can't make bets on this one)- words and images don't exactly run parallel to each other. And they're not meant to. This is not a space for passive thinking or a passive existence, you see. You are here to be challenged, you are here to think differently, and you are here to realize that you will look at the images before you several times before you come to some degree of being content with your interpretations. But no worries.. this is no contest to be won. There is power, wit, humor and superb intellect happening in this stream, but what's more, there is so much goodness and love, love, love at the same time.. trust me when I say this- you will not find a stream more engaging, mind-bending, and entertaining than Derrick's. Now stop reading and go look at the images already.

Your shots captures the soul of great silences...and the poetry of a second passage. Great silence DerrickT.....-O-O-

...words as if it was canine, sink in the fragile neck of the beast veins, spasmodics poetry and other grins like fresh food for the soul.

I love the dark, conceptual and poetic photography of Derrick. It is the most unique photostream I've seen on Flickr. What's more, he's such a terrific person whom I'd love to share a drink with. ;p Thank you for being here and sharing your wonderful works with us, Mr. DerrickT!! :))

Since I've gotten to know him, (as much as you can know someone through online text and pictures) I've been inspired to laugh, create, and even blush. Derrick is truly a one-of-a-kind photographer with a sincere vision that would make Daren and Dali go "Wow" He is among my favorite flickr friends, photographers and poets. gumdrops and Saturdays, Mel

Dream like scenes in his works are staged out of his daily lifestyle and they're all so poetic, evocative and fascinating. Everytime I visit his photostream I feel as if I step into another world, another reality, where your imagination can roam free. And yes, it definitely feels great. ;)
