A Wonderfully Odd World (18 photos)

Award winning American photographer Geof Kern takes our world and turns it upside down. Inspired by post-modernist painters and cinematic actors/directors such as Buster Keaton and Jean-Luc Godard, Kern's storytelling style has an artistic as well as a deadpan nature to it. His black-and-white photos may remind you of another Met favorite, Rodney Smith, in that both have the ability to create timeless photos that, on closer inspection, seem slightly surreal.

Read a short interview with Geof at Partfaliaz where he talks about his background and how cinema has influenced his style.
