Robert ParkeHarrison The Architect's Brother

Yesterday I was shown a book by this photographer.
I had never heard of him, but was immediately captivated by his whimsical  images. He works with his wife, and their book The Architect’s Brother was named as one of 'the Ten Best Photography Books of the Year' of 2000 by the New York Times. He explains his work:
My photographs tell stories of loss, human struggle, and personal exploration within landscapes scarred by technology and over-use…. [I] strive to metaphorically and poetically link laborious actions, idiosyncratic rituals and strangely crude machines into tales about our modern experience.
