cool site: charlie white



this guy does some seriously disturbing pictures...

link to his book

Charlie White is an American artist who works predominantly in photography. White blends real people and humanoid puppets, to create art works which introduce life-like monsters into apparently mundane situations. His most famous collection, Understanding Joshua, shows a grotesque puppet named Joshua, representing vulnerability, poor self image and the discomfort of sexual encounters. He has also directed a music video for American indie band Interpol's 2004 single Evil, from their Antics album, using a creepy, life-sized, singing puppet, involved in a fatal car crash. Interpol fans have affectionately named him 'Norman', and have identified him as personifying certain band members.
