Back in August (’05) I wrote about Darkshapes, the photography site of Jay Parkinson. I’ve been somewhat of a fan of Jay’s work for a while now. Lately, I’ve noticed a shift in Jay’s photographs… He’s always done really beautiful portraits, and his recent work is no exception, but they have taken on a slightly darker, more ‘edgy’ feel to them. I don’t mean that in an over-the-top shocking kind of way… it’s much more subtle… like there’s something going on, but you’re not quite sure what. You’re drawn into the scene, and there’s something just a little off, or a little disturbing, and you want to know more. Jay has really taken his work to the next level… and I like it.
