I love these haunting scarecrow photos by John Piper. These scarecrows are the kind that can scare off much more than just birds. If I were walking at night and saw one of these ghostly, otherworldly figures standing in a field with its arms outstretched, I would likely faint. I love the way they look in the atmosphere of Piper's grainy, black and white photos. He took these phenomenal photos between 1928 and 1977.
"Photographs of scarecrows by the artist John Piper made between 1938 and 1977.
Beginning as a modernist, he is better known for his later romantic paintings of rolling hills, castle ruins and church steeples.
However, his photographs shine a light on his interests in vernacular objects and architecture."
