Surrealist photographs

Check out this NPR piece on Robert ParkeHarrison's photography:

"The mythic photos depict an "everyday" man interacting with, or trying to bandage up, a broken piece of the Earth. But his tools are never suited for the task before him. Shana says their work doesn't offer a solution to environmental problems — "We are not scientists, we're artists," she says — but she hopes their work will allow viewers to think more critically about humans' relationship to technology and nature, and "inspire change, one viewer at a time." "
