The Uncanny is a selection of photographs by photographer Rick Stolk. These stark images are deceptively simple; on the surface very little is happening, yet they are strangely unnerving. As Rick explains:
I try to create a sense of "hyperrealism," to give the viewer an uneasy feeling about a place without throwing something in their face. The choice of subject is...subtle and precarious. In the scenes and places I photograph I always feel that "something has happened there," something eerie, something unpleasant, something illegal. There are no people. Have they just left? Are they hiding? Are they coming?We think you'll agree that these images are chillingly beautiful.
