Nature is Ancient

Last week I stumbled upon the work of photographer Maleonn.

He works in a variety of styles, blending nature and open spaces with human strangeness and kitch. Some of his photos are black and white, and some are black and white with meticulous hand-coloring with watercolors.

Nothing is left un-damaged by his aging techniques, which leaves the viewer, after seeing his body of work as a whole, with feelings of another expanse, a non-knowing of what is around him. It's all very moody stuff, I recommend it highly.
