These fictional views of imaginary architecture and landscapes are photographic collages produced by American CGI artist Jim Kazanjian.
Kazanjian never takes any photographs himself, but instead combines as many as 50 images found on the internet to create each collage in the series. “My method of construction has an improvisational and random quality to it, since it is largely driven by the source material I have available,” says Kazanjian. “I think of the work as a type of mutation which can haphazardly spawn in numerous and unpredictable directions.”
…The artist cites the horror novels of early twentieth century writers H.P. Lovecraft and Algernon Blackwood as inspiration. He explains: “I am intrigued with the narrative archetypes these writers utilise to transform the commonplace into something sinister and foreboding.”
