    The umbrella is curious because it is not raining. Perhaps he uses it as a sail, coasting from one universe to the next.

    I have seen some of his other work on his web site His work is also currently being showed at a gallery in NYC. I understand he is a film maker.

    Does anyone know how the photographer shoots? How does he get the images to pop like that, lens, camera, software? This image is so surreal, much like the world these holymen inhabit.
