I met Jesse Gentry a few years ago on the set of a short film about zombies, cowboys and robots from space. The dude has a weird style that is nothing short of macabre. Lately, I have been very impressed with his photographs. They involve small-scale models and figurines that he builds in his apartment using random objects you would find in dumpsters and utility closets. The result is similar to something out of the mind of Jan Svankmajer, the director of the Czechoslovak film Alice.
