Creating Mystery with Everyday Objects by Thomas Jackson

Here are a few awe inspiring photos by Thomas Jackson that somehow create epic mystery and drama with simple everyday objects. In the above photo the artist has inserted a cluster of plates and in the photo below the inserted objects are post-it notes. There is a delightful sense of whimsy created by the objects in these images. The levity of this is all set against dark brooding landscapes  creating a dramatic atmosphere that I adore! I also love the use of synthetic colour against natural tones of landscape.
