For those of you who are not familiar with Unseen Monsters, the idea came about as Leon and I were looking to work on a project together – combining my photography skills with Leon’s graphic designs. The concept involves Leon drawing on top of my photos to add in additional elements – the Unseen Monsters of cities around the world.
Each series consists of 12 unique monsters to their city, with a black and white photography and colorful monster lurking in the background. To date we have already revealed the monsters hidden in Melbourne, Australia, New York, New York, San Francisco, California, and now in series 4, Mount Shasta, California.
The Mount Shasta series features photos covering the entire region from Weed, CA all the way to Crater Lake, Oregon. With record snowfall over the holiday period, the series showed a diverse range of locations and even some of the local wildlife.
You can view the full set of Mount Shasta monsters, as well as all of our monsters from previous cities, over at UnseenMonsters.com.
If you like what you see, we also have an online store where you can purchase prints and other items so you can show them off in your own home. All sales help us to keep this project up and running, and we are already hard at work on our next few series.
We are always on the lookout for new cities to shoot for Unseen Monsters, so if you would like us to expose the Unseen Monsters in your city, please get in touch with us so we can make it happen.
