THERE ARE STORIES of a strange carnival that turns up now and then in abandoned fields near small, lonely towns. It only opens after sunset, and the attractions are all one-of-a-kind. Those who go and come back have tales to tell that linger with them long after the carnival is gone. Those who go and never come back... well. There are stories that linger about them, too.

Aliza Razell: Magic and Mystic Photography

Flickrock, Facebook

Massachusetts-based artist Aliza Razell creates tickling self-portraits that explore philosophical abstractions through the merged mediums of watercolour and photography. Using Photoshop, Razell unites the two mediums in her Anesidora (explorations of the Pandora’s Box myth) and Ikävä (the Finnish word meaning the feeling of longing) series.

“There are certain half-dreaming moods of mind in which we naturally steal away from noise and glare, and seek some quiet haunt where we may indulge our reveries and build our air castles undisturbed.”

| the devil and god are raging inside me | so if I’m a liar and you’re a thief, at least we both know where the other one sleeps

in the south where holy is just another word for terror, god and the devil wage war in cotton fields and wooden churches, on back roads and deep down in the river
they play cards and drink whiskey, bet preachers like pocket change 
and then they watch, bright eyed,  their hungry maws dripping blood as their children tear themselves and each other apart for the taste of absolution 
(for alice)
