    My god. This is amazing! So clever and brilliant! Kudos to you.

  • Thanks! I’ll have to upload more of this series – there’s 42 I think – all the same suit and briefcase… By the way, some of your photos are amazing – I’m really stoked to get a complement from someone who is so talented themselves.

    shame about the briefcase, for me it spoils an otherwise wonderful shot.

  • Oh, I like the briefcase – adds to the surreal effect I think, but thanks for the comment.
