The black-and-white photographs in the series present strange, highly constructed scenes starring a man in a suit attempting to mend the world around him.

Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison are a husband and wife duo who have been making photographs together for almost 20 years. Their work focuses on the relationship between humans and the environment—an idea that has only recently come to popularity with movements like the Go Green initiative and concepts like the carbon footprint. Using photogravure, collage, and painting techniques, the ParkeHarrisons create cinematic environments that explore how we interact with our natural surroundings.

The ParkeHarrisons' work can be found in over 20 prestigious museum collections, and their book The Architect's Brother was named one of the ten best photography books by the New York Times in 2000. Recently the couple has begun working in sculpture—large dramatic pieces that complement the dreamy qualities of their photogravures.
