The above photographs are from the series "Understanding Joshua" depicting a horrifically realistic muppet. The following is another great example of how Charlie poses fantastical things in real world settings, making them appear all the more bizarre.

Charlie White - Highland Park Justin Mabry of Nightowl Productions mentioned that sculptures for Charlie's photographs were created by Schell Sculpture Studios, check out more of their amazing work here.

Intriguing artwork, both creative and mentally scarring at the same time.

It's like a bad accident, I want to look away but I can't divert my eyes.

It's worth noting that Charlie White also directed the video for Interpol's song "Evil": But hey, who's on trial?
