C.A.R.L. is a series by London-based photographer David Ryle about a sad and lonely robot traveling all by his lonesome throughout England. The beautiful, silver mech was created by artist Gemma Fletcher and Studio Boo.

The series of photos show C.A.R.L. wandering streets and fields, doing human stuff like: reflecting deeply, getting lost in thought, and being overcome with emotion while staring at the horizon. It’s a bit of a downer, actually. Ryle says the suit is a reference to retro concepts of the image of the future. He also says that the series is about the loneliness of being.
