Twenty miles west of Blanding, Utah, is the roadside

Sooner or later a lover of the weird fiction masterworks of H. P. Lovecraft is bound to express that literary emotion one way or another.

Just recently I was re-reading the master's cerebral piece "The Shadow Over Innsmouth", and once again, as with all of the singularly original writer's stories, stranger than strange images are conjured up in the mind. Lovecraft's narrative prose is slow moving, but not crawlingly so. There is always a creeping sense
of dread that compells us to read on. The author never turns sharp corners in his writings. The corners are all rounded, not hiding anything completely yet not revealing anything completely either.

The images here represent rather well what comes to mind when I'm reading Lovecraft. And as you can easily see, they are all manipulations of some of my pre-existing photographs. The "melted" look represents the slow but creepy aspect of his storytelling. The image with the spi-ral staircase could easily be seen as the entrance to Lovecraft's hideaway, and is my favorite.

All images are Limited Editions, made with archival materials and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Click on thumbnails to view enlarged images. Enjoy.
