Robert Rickhoff’s Photographic Jokes

For his series “out of place,”¬†Robert Rickhoff¬†digitally manipulated photographs to turn what at first glance seems like totally regular scenes in regular towns into the height of silliness. With such familiar objects, the images seem like photographs from a parallel universe where people play a combination of soccer and basketball and trains have to deal with humps in the tracks. These jokes would be easy to ruin with a lazy edit, but Robert’s perfectionism really gives them the uncanniness they need to work. I wish so many of these things existed, especially the half pipes in the road and bench slide. The world is so much more interesting when you put things together.¬†( via )
