We’ve had a fair number of impressive photography projects that portray certain locations as alien landscapes, made either through landscape photography or aerial photography. We’re glad to add one more to the pile: a surreal series depicting Nevada as an alien desert expanse. Tom Leighton, who we previously featured for his minimalist abstract series on contrails, has made a dramatic shift to a rusty red color scheme for this body of work. Whether you’re into aerial photography or photographing landscapes in more surreal styles, this project will surely inspire you.
