Working in an artistic conceit that dates back into the early history of photography, Robert ParkeHarrison poses in his own photographs, not as a subject for self-portraiture, but as an anonymous Everyman figure struggling heroically but futilely with the forces of nature in a drear world. Incorporating aspects of theater, performance art, sculpture, and painting, ParkeHarrison's haunting, disturbing images transcend the familiar world of conventional photographic representation into surreality and resonate with the force of myth.
