I caught a quick clip this evening on a short PBS show showing the process the husband and wife artistic team go through to create a photograph. They are Robert and Shanna ParkeHarrison. I am mesmerized by their work. Just in awe. Everything is done with traditional techniques. no digital. It gives the photos are true ageless quality. But they aren't just photos. They are a photographic representation of an idea. I can't describe them except to say it's like Roald Dahl took up the visual arts.

go here: Robert and Shanna Parke Harrison. look through their gallery. I am now adding the book of their work to my Christmas wish list.

Wow. That's... really something. It is kind of Roald Dahl-esque. Or Edward Gorey-esque, maybe.
