Artist John Marshall has a unique way of capturing fantasy photographs. Using sunsets and cardboard cutouts, he photographs otherworldly silhouette scenes. He began the project while living in a small cabin on Frye Island, Maine. Using spare cardboard from a local dump he recycles materials to create his fantasy illusions.
Sunset Selfies became more important as John isolated during the coronavirus pandemic. He wanted those nearby, and across the world to see images that have a subtle hint of comedy despite their spooky appearance. His latest works have been inspired by the outbreak, with zombies making an appearance to draw parallels to invasion movies. They also highlight some of the more bizarre results of quarantining, such as the worldwide panic purchasing of toilet paper.
