Photos of a Perpetually Burning House

Burning House is a series of photographs by artist Carrie Schneider that shows a small white house burning on an island in the middle of a lake. While the subject matter might not be too out of the ordinary, glance through the images and you’ll soon find that the house appears to be perpetually on fire throughout the seasons. The project actually took two years to complete, and Schneider built a small 8×6-foot house for each of the images. She then hauled it to the lake in Wisconsin, floated it over to the tiny island by canoe, and set it on fire. She then photographed it at different times of day, in different seasons, and in different weather conditions.

You can find the entire project here.
