Skewed Perspective - The Photographs of Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison

I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this set of images by husband and wife team, Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison. Robert is the main character in these twisted reality plays, wearing a black suit to symbolize the modern man. Awesome! This from their site:

"Our work begins with the construction of sets and props," they explain. "These objects are photographed in staged scenes within damaged or constructed landscapes. We manipulate the photograph via darkroom techniques and mixed media. This allows us the opportunity to enhance or subdue elements within the scene. The image is altered further by paints and varnishes. None of the images are real in the factual sense, but they are treated as precious talismans of a lost moment, a documented super-reality, whose message, like that of all myth, transcends the small realities of the day to day world."
