Beyond straight photography lies the realm of the imaginery photograph. Les Hooton has produced this wonderful figure of the imagination, Meeting the Elders. Each individual image was itself taken by Les; and he has combined them into one fantastical picture of a world that I, for one, would love to travel to. And as I look at this image, I feel like I could just step into the scene described.
It looks like a scene from HP Lovecraft, strange beings up to no earthly purpose.
