Horizons by Aaron Farley
Farley on his project:
These are not real photographs of real things. The original photographs are of water and clouds and these are photographs of those photographs, turned on their side, moved, reshot, reprinted, cut and folded, and reassembled to create a different scene which still looks familiar.

Sven Skaltje was saddened to find the carcasses of two female reindeer whose antlers had become entangled during a dominance struggle in northern Sweden. He estimates it took three days for them to die of starvation. After separating the bodies, he saw from the ear markings that one belonged to him and the other to his cousin. Skaltje is much admired by the younger Sami in his herding group, but he is unsure whether the skills he teaches them will endure.
