Paradise Lost

 

Paradise Lost is an exploration of suburban iconography dealing specifically with heavy metal culture and its icons. The dark apocalyptic landscapes echo the images that have become the aesthetic of Heavy Metal. In each image there is an area of mirrored photograph that forms the skulls and evil beasts that we can recall from Heavy Metal album covers. Somewhere in the image is the headbanger, captured in motion creating an infernal and somewhat transcendental presence.
