James Casabere's art.

"Casebere's pioneering work has established him at the forefront of artists working with constructed photography. [...] For the last thirty years Casebere has consistently devised increasingly complex models and photographed them in his studio. Based solidly on an understanding of architecture as well as art historical and cinematic sources, Casebere's abandoned spaces are hauntingly evocative. His table-sized constructions are made of simple materials, pared down to essential forms."

A recent discovery through my mother, to whom I'm very grateful.

illusion for all, reality for some Claudia. Stunning.

Stunning is the word. Disturbing also comes to mind, though.
