Exposure № 077: Where the Buffalo Roam

Allan Ellerby brings us this surreal image of buffalo in a supermarket. He draws inspiration from Francis Bacon’s  statement that art should ‘deepen the mystery.’

We love the unexpected juxtaposition!

Allan Ellerby was born in England in 1952 and for the last five years has been exploring new techniques for blending images. He has a book titled ‘The Feeding of the Birds’ and is about to bring that work up to date with a book called ‘Altering the State’. Much of the work is centred on Manhattan, but there are also images from Colorado, Utah, Arizona, California, New Jersey, Maine, Florida and England.  His submissions to Dr. Hurley’s Snake-Oil Cure can be seen here.
