From Boing Boing, take a look at the strange and magical photographs of Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison. They seem to have two series, Listen to the Earth and Book of Life, both of which look like they exist as books, in which case, I want them. So. Bad.
The esthetic is sort of like luminescent steampunk surrealism. Really gorgeous stuff. The only thing it reminds me of is Neutral Milk Hotel, though I don’t know that that makes sense, but: two-headed boys, synthetic flying machines, cars careening in from the clouds, magical sound devices… It’s the same sort of magical realist timelessness thing, technology reimagined as beautiful and poetic, nostaligia for times and places and people that never existed.
Anyway. Really lovely.
