    Jo Ann Callis: Early Colour

Just a parrot, watching a boat, in the bath. Meet Jo Ann Callis.

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Okay so we misled you with the funny parrot — some of these photos are much, much more sinister than you’d expect. Jo Ann Callis’ photos have the eerie, long-corridor feeling of a David Lynch film, combined with the kind of vibrancy you’d expect to see in old American holiday catalogues. One minute you’re checking out a goldfish in a water glass, the next you’re watching a plate go up in flames by some of the most terrifying salt and pepper shakers you’ll have seen in a while. All of these are just totally valid reasons why we love the work of photographer Jo Ann Callis.
