Half awake by Erin Tyner

I recently saw these pieces by photographer Erin Tyner and was so struck by them.  They have a surreal and slightly ominous feeling. Each scene could be a still from a suspense movie.  I love how she plays with mood and proportion.

Erin describes the series this way "In my Half Awake series I construct scenes by combining household items, natural objects, and train figures under one inch in height. By pairing figures and context I create characters that are engaged with an unfolding narrative."

Prints start at $25.
