Lookouts.

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

These photos, part of a series called Miradors by Erwan Fichou, are striking and surprising and exceptionally strange. Taken in Mexico City, the images feature passersby perched on carefully manicured treetops. What it all means, I'm not sure, but I like it. Reminds me of the beautiful, brilliant Eyes as Big as Plates.


Further foliage-related reading: the handwriting of treesheadwear inspired by "the texture of earth and forests," and my article on Swedish treehouses for VICE. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Photographs by Erwan Fichou. Thanks, Thisispaper.

super surreal, I actually got a bit of a shock when I saw the first man, they definitely have an eerie quality to them which I like :)

This is really cool - I had to go back and reread what you wrote, because the first time through I missed the part that said they were passersby, and not models (?!). I totally thought they were posed like that specifically for the series.

I don't know if this was the appropriate reaction, but these made me laugh outloud. So quirky.

Loulou said...

Haha, so funny. And interestingly strange.

Rachel, I believe they were just people off the street! Which makes it even better :)
