French photographer Denis Darzacq’s suspended animation photography with subjects floating weightless, trapped in time, disconnected from their environment, yet fully immersed within it, juxtaposed against familiar objects and locations, causes one to pause and reflect.

Decorating your garden? Have an affinity for the macabre, a taste for the morbid, or just have a great sense of humor? Then you will love this Zombie of Montclaire Moors Statue, designed by British artist Alan Dickinson.
Dickinson has a reputation in the field of science fiction and fantasy, his work inspired by a deep respect for ancient legends and mythology.
Alan Dickinson says, “The things which inspired me when I was a youth still influence me today – the best of comic book art, the Star wars films, fantasy games like Dungeons and Dragons and graphic novels. I’ve always been fascinated by the myths and legends of the ancient world. I’m intrigued by the thought that these stories may well be based on real events, and wonder what they have to tell us about our origins and our destiny. These ancient spiritual teachings hint at the existence of earlier, amazingly sophisticated peoples who have left us their wisdom, which we are only now beginning to uncover“.
You can purchase this statue at Toscano.
