I got the idea for this series in the later part of 2008. As the spring of 2009 rolled around I had finally worked out the series in my head, on paper and in reality. I initially uploaded the first photo to flickr and posted a link in the MacHeist forum in a post titled “Oops…”. The rest of the photos were uploaded and posted over the course of a week. The feedback I got was amazing. Here are some of my favorite responses:
“Truly Awesome” – johnred
“You cannot be serious… I just saw this. You sick person you.” – jfm429
“This is so painful to look at. Now, I’ll have nightmares for sure.” – kudioske
“Either good at photoshop, or… LIGHT THE TORCHES, MAN THE HARPOONS WITCH HUNT FOR JUSTICE!” – Eggbert
“No one in his right mind would do this for real.” -Scandalous
“We are clearly witnessing either epic genius, or epic insanity, or both.” – kudioske
The details behind the photos are up for speculation. Only a handful of people know the painstaking effort that went into the creation of these pictures, but it is the mystery of the photo which lends the magic. And so, I leave it up for you to decide, or if you prefer, to suspend your disbelief and simply allow it to be.
