caution: some images below are nsfw!
Who is Merkley??? He is a not your typical photographer according to this, but his flickr stream is covered in photos which I am in awe of and feel compelled to bring to your eyeballs today.
There are so many things happening in each shot it takes awhile for the ideas to sink in.
Most of the subjects are nude or nearly so, and always doing something just a little bit off.
Throwing cats or other animals into the shots for added insanity just makes it so ridiculously fun.
He uses photoshop extensively and most of the collages work really well. I love the bright contrasty lighting and over saturation.
