Compelling Portraits of Surreal Americana

Marshall Scheuttle’s photographs are snapshots of the strange Americana across our nation’s land. A river baptism, snake charmer, and carnival worker are a few of the subjects of Scheuttle’s lens. The portraits range from proud and lonely — many self-aware and some on the fringes — to narrative landscapes where the only thing keeping you from reaching the Crayola-colored kingdom of a suburban backyard is the blacktop moat of Middle America’s parking lot. There’s a definite Lynchian vibe to the taxidermy on wood panel and wintry pines. Visit more of Scheuttle’s surreally commanding imagery past the break.
