Thomas Allen's Pulp Fiction Artworks

Photographer Thomas Allen has an interesting take on the pulp fiction genre. He cuts various characters from¬†a book’s cover, theatrically positions and lights them (often with a tongue-in-cheek response to the work’s title), then photographs the results to create an eerily staged diorama¬†with surprising dramatic impact. To see more of Allen’s work, visit the 1dak.com site.
