“The Last Man on Earth”: Melancholy Aesthetics in Chilling Photoworks by Jermaine Saunders

Jermaine Saunders is an LA based designer and motion artist.

“I love to create artwork by parodying mass media exaggerating certain formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society. Investigating the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of it’s effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realm of our imagination,” he writes.
