Dancing Branflake said...

Oh wow! These are amazing! Talk about Murphy's Law.

Missy said...

The Destroyed Room and Insomnia are my favorites! I can relate...

Vivienne said...

The birthday party pic is disturbing, as is the insomnia photo. The guy in the milk pic has a lot going on.

The destroyed room? pfft. I have 4 boys... I could've taken that picture. ;)

thanks to my ever so untidy boyfriend, our bedroom currently looks like that destroyed room.

actually, it looks worse.

blueviolet said...

I feel like I am on a bad trip when I look at these. I've never been on a good or bad trip, but I feel like it must feel like that.

I'm not making any sense.

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

I am in LOVE with these- Thanks for the intro- These are way up my alley!

Have a great day droll.

Heff said...

I think ALL rooms looked like "Destroyed" in 1978, lol !

Christiejolu said...

That destroyed room looks like my room...LOL! Great pics!

Melanie's Randomness said...

The After 'Invisible Man' is omg! That room! I like the first one & the insonmia one! What a different artist! I liked your choices!

Gabby said...

Wow....definitely a little creepy (not sure why I feel that way) but I can't stop looking.

Claire Kiefer said...

The Invisible Man one is incredible. I love it.

Pretty Little World said...

I don't know which of these I like the most - they're all kind of amazing and haunting.

girlunwinding said...

Wow, they each contain there own little "surprise" don't they. "The ventriloquist" creeps me out but then again I detest dolls (a little on the Insane Clown Posse side).

Phoenix said...

Wow, the "Sudden Gust of Wind" and "After Invisible Man" shots are amazing, as is the flooded grave.

I must confess that the ventriloquist one kinda freaked me out.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Now how does he do it, I wonder. The milk? And did he really destroy a whole room? (and kill someone to get an arm...) Freaking cool pictures!

Katy Mary said...

Love these! The dead troops talking one is creepy

Sam said...

Gosh theres are wild! Disturbing in a strange sort of way....not sure why? As an aside - boy those outfits the army guys are wearing really do blend into the background, don't they?

Gabbi said...

Beautiful and grim. I love!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

These photos are ridiculously amazing. It's jaw-dropping photos like these that really inspire me to try and be a photographer (even though, I know there is no way I could be as good, lol!!).

♥Aubrey said...

Incredible photography!
Although these are images of life, I'm a little disturbed. Some things I like pretend don't happen...like the soldiers photo.

Alicia said...

ohhh these are awesome... the invisible man one is awesome...i love it! btw- just watched the trailers for the monkey mom show.... people are effing NUTS!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Love the grittiness of these pictures

Kitty Stampede said...

TK Kerouac said...
