This week we focus on British photographer Chris Simpson and his stark photographic series on the haunting statues or Moai, of Easter Island, or Rapa Nui shot in 2001.
The mysterious enormous stone figures, vestiges of an advanced and flourishing society, have puzzled explorers and researchers for centuries. “I am basically an incurable romantic and the idea of UFOs, Atlantis and vanished advanced ancient races always appealed to me.” (Simpson)
